Utica artist Jonathan Kirk presents an exhibition of models and studies. Kirk's sculptures, while abstract, are evocative of a wide range of sources, from the natural and organic world to forms of industrial and naval architecture. The works explore the intersection between the artist and the engineer, but still embody the mysterious nature of what might be called "cultural machinery" and demonstrate how the collective visual unconscious is plundered and sampled to create forms that are at once familiar yet new.

Babs Owen's exhibition of wall installations is composed entirely of hand-painted and cut paper. Owen, a trained sculptor who has been painting for several years, presents cut paper works that blur the line between painting and sculpture. The Rhode Island-based artist's compositions recall lace or crochet work yet are free of recognizable or repeating patterns, and invite the viewer to examine the subtle boundary between flat work and the third dimension.
