“@2400 RPM”
McNabb Martin Contemporary Art presents the work of local artist Doyle Reno, who creates reverse-sculpted cast acrylic works, a stubborn and unforgiving material. It can only be properly sculpted under strict conditions and is highly subject to heat and friction. In addition, the sculpting process itself is arduous — and hazardous, as most of the sculpting tools operate at speeds of up to 20,000 RPM.
WHEN: 12:00 to 6:00 p.m.
WHERE: McNabb Martin Contemporary Art, 1990 Columbia Street, Little Italy, 619-546-5888; mcnabbmartincontemporaryart.com
