“My art combines elements and sources to capture the essence of things that endure, things that last, ancient voices that speak to our hearts in modern times,” says Indianapolis-based wood artist Clay Foster. His fine-art wood sculptures will be displayed alongside local artist Brad Stroman’s contemporary realist paintings in an exhibition titled Ancient Voices. Stroman is similarly concerned with ancient times, particularly in regard to nature. “By incorporating the Japanese Zen Buddhist aesthetic of wabi-sabi, I can create a stage where both nature and man-made surfaces and objects play out their balancing act,” he says. An opening reception, with Stroman in attendance, will be held Saturday, May 31, 3-6 p.m at the Grovewood Gallery. grovewood.com. Pictured: Temple Bowl by Clay Foster
