Alumnus’ ceramic art on display in Shelter Island gallery

The Boltax Gallery Summer Project on Shelter Island is currently presenting “Specimens and Artifacts” featuring works by David Hicks, AU Class of 2006. David is a ceramicist from North Carolina who makes Impressionistic sculptures inspired by organic forms in the American landscape. The show, which runs through July 31, 2012, includes his “Still Lifes,” wall sculptures of formed objects he ties together with wire or twine, and “Systerms,” other forms that can look like sea life or a strange forest discovery, which come from a connection the artist makes between the botanical world and his own existence. Boltax Gallery is at 21 North Ferry Road, Shelter Island and is open Fridays-Sundays from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
