Deviltry, (Industry No. 8), 1995, Richard Gachot

This exhibition brings together an extraordinary collection of major works that feature found object sculptor Richard Gachot's signature style. Gachot's capacity for assemblage and mechanical invention fuses with whimsy and wit, producing works that are ironic, at times searing, indictments of common foibles, and abuses of the environment, real estate development, 
and recurring patterns of behavior or belief.

Gallery visitors are invited to comment in the gallery guest book. Recent visitor comments include: 

"What a fabulous imagination!",
"Terrific - so much fun to view",
"This artist really has 'the sight' to be able to see other fanciful things in the shapes of ordinary
objects like chairs, lard buckets and shoe trees..",
"The way that this artist sees such things in what most would judge as junk is absolutely stunning. 
I especially love the Pollux and Castor sculpture. This whole exhibit was great!",
"Please consider keeping this exhibit going FOREVER!"

The gallery is open to the public free of charge, Monday - Friday 9am through 4pm  
and on weekends 11am through 4pm.  
Please ask for assistance if you wish to activate the kinetic sculptures on display.
