Reba Rye & Stephen Driver @ Zephyr Gallery

Through Sept. 29

Zephyr Gallery
610 E. Market St. · 585-5646

Form vs. function, purpose vs. pleasure, man vs. nature: These are just some of the critical dichotomies explored through photography, sculpture and more in Reba Rye and Stephen Driver’s collaborative exhibit at Zephyr Gallery. Potter and painter extraordinaire Driver creates nature-based paintings that push the boundaries of form and reality, toying with the aesthetics of deception, while Rye’s minimalist drawings and large-scale photographs focus on water, with long stretches of fabric depicting images of the ocean. Rye also contributes plates and other vessels made from stones found on the beaches of Lake Michigan, the bones of long-toppled buildings transformed into art. From ochre rock to speckled bark, Rye and Driver’s work is at once soothing and provocative. —Jennifer Harlan
