Stone Work: Artists' Encounters with Hard Places
Feb. 11—Mar. 10, 2012.
Greeting of the Artists: Sat., Feb. 11, Noon—2 p.m.
I have seen sparks fly out
When two stones are rubbed,
So perhaps it is not dark inside after all;
Perhaps there is a moon shining
From somewhere, as though behind a hill-
Just enough light to make out
The strange writings, the star-charts
On the inner walls.
— from Charles Simic,"Stone"
