Press release

City Gallery presents Between the Lines, a sculpture exhibit by Shelby Head from June 30 through July 31. The Opening Reception is on Sat., July 9, from 3—6 p.m. with live music by Russ Becker, Stephen Roane and Max Head.

The latest sculptural compositions by Shelby Head employ the vocabulary Head developed while creating a visual language for the mapping of music through design and color. The sculptures are composed so that energy is made visible, adjusting, approaching and receding forms that imply continuous expansion. A “tonic” color cord equivalent is used as the starting point that determines all other colors in many of the compositions. Borrowing from the principals of Synchronism, Dada, Constructivism, Assemblage and Minimalism, touching the sublime is at the heart of this new body of work by sculptor Shelby Head.
