A Far Country: Crossing Borders II 

When: Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Feb. 26 2011
In art, symbolic representation can range from the cartoonish to the primitive. Paul Harmon’s work, parked firmly between the legacies of Henri Matisse and Keith Haring, straddles this line. His paintings are at once sensual and childlike, provocative and playful, and his subject matter deals with similar overlaps. “Life changes as we cross borders,” the artist says in his exhibition statement, referring to the transitions we all share — those communal rites that occur geographically, psychologically and spiritually. The exhibit will feature several new works in addition to the oil and acrylic paintings that Harmon is known for — bold stencils outlining forms that both simplify and expand the things they represent.
