Robb Putnam, "Bindle Stiff"

Robb Putnam Solo Exhibition 

When: Mondays-Saturdays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Aug. 1 2016
Price: FREE

Robb Putnam builds animal forms with cast off blankets, shirts, fake fur, rags, thread, plastic garbage bags, leather scraps and glue. These sculptures evoke playful, whimsical characters found in children’s books, but his characters are something different: they are physically and psychologically vulnerable and seem like overgrown stuffed toys or imaginary friends—misfits whose demeanors both invite and possibly repel. Like mutant craft projects gone awry, their surfaces suggest that the skins of these beings have been torn away, exposing their soft insides. Gallery Walk July 8, 6-8 p.m.; Artist Chat July 9, 10 a.m.
