This event has ended.

In John Himmelfarb’s current exhibition, which spans 30 years, we see his energetic inventiveness encompassing drawing, painting, sculpture, and printmaking. Beneath the immediate image of a truck, a face, or cityscape, there are deep psychological connections between artist and subject matter. A bold, 7 foot, ink self-portrait almost accosts us as it stares back. Another emotive entanglement features a man on a raft, surrounded by the clutter of his life. The boat is clearly sinking. Himmelfarb’s fascination with trucks is more benevolent in Blue Motive, a recent three dimensional print; while Juggernaut, an aggressive truck painting, is obviously tangled in its emotions.
