Peterson exhibition

  • Peterson exhibition

After revisiting the Impressionist show on Saturday, my art maven friend and I stopped in to see the wood sculptures by Michael Peterson, in the Strauss Gallery. The picture is terribly blurry; I was trying to capture how the work looked in the room as a whole — there was a cohesiveness to the individual pieces. Northwestern influences are obvious here; that Peterson is able to create boxes from trees (and then balance them) is quite a trick. Definitely worth a visit, as is one to the Stephens Gallery, where drawings and paintings from the permanent collection have replaced the Stephens art, which has moved to the “Impressionists and Their Influence” exhibition.
