Kitchen Gods at Work by John H. StoneCharles Cooper and John H. Stone:
Painting and Sculpture

A new exhibit at the Esther Klein Gallery entitled, Charles Cooper and John H. Stone: Painting and Sculpture features the work of two artists who both reference relationships in their art.

Cooper's paintings reflect his love of Indian miniature painting, Gothic painting, and American figurative works of the 1950s. Stone's sculptures also reference his own relationship with his history, his family, and his location in American society. Stone often integrates found objects and family snapshots to make his varied sculptures. To the left, is a work by Stone entitled Kitchen Gods at Work. This exhibit runs through May 2. For more information see www.kleinartgallery.org.
