Chadbourne's work in this exhibition evokes a spiritual journey through totem-like constructs that simultaneously appear contemporary and ancient. These small wooden sculptures offer an introspective and almost otherworldly experience. The breadth of Chadbourne’s work is impressive, and it is obvious that his creative process is meticulous and unending.

 

The Martin Museum of Art held a reception on Thursday, October 5th, from 5:30 to 7pm.
