Best Bets: Galleries

"Resin-ating Metal: The sculpture of Arlene Abend," a retrospective of local artist Arlene Abend's 30-year career opens with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday Nov. 5 at the Edgewood Gallery.

Abend has spent the last three decades creating art in resin, bronze and steel, creating dynamic, often symbolic, contemporary forms in a wide range of scale and material.

"The use of clear resin and lost wax surfaces allows me to capture, reflect and diffract light to create a constantly changing vision," Abend said.

A trailer for the documentary "Stretching Boundaries: Life work of Arlene Abend," will also screen during the reception. The film, by Courtney Rile and Mike Barletta of Daylight Blue Media, will be shown in full at 4 p.m. Saturday Dec. 4 at the Everson Museum of Art.

Resin-ating Metal will be on display at Edgewood, 216 Tecumseh Road, through Dec. 31. Gallery and custom framing shop hours are 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Satuday, closed Sunday and Monday.
