Variations on Growth:
Foothills Art Center proudly presents Variations on Growth: Ben Butler. Generously sponsored by Linda and Terry Stevinson.
Ben Butler is a prolific artist, with a unique organic style. Largely process driven, he and his assistants work fluidly as they allow the procedure of cutting wood and foam into organic shapes and molds to inform the final product. The outcome is surprising and awesome in both scale and intricacy. He constructs massive installations from wood, foam and concrete. This show displays a wide variety of his work including outdoor installations, extremely large room-sized unique constructions and some new pieces never before seen.
The exhibition has a member-only preview on Thursday, May 11, 2016 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. The exhibit opens to the public on May 12th and will be on view through July 25th.
