Eight extraordinary puppet sculptures by Sam Shippee share the gallery with tempra and glitter paintings on cardboard by a mysterious artist named King Norman. Sam Shippee’s figure sculptures conjure wondrous guardians, travelers, explorers and protectors. They evoke guardian figures such as medieval gargoyles, and militant saints, as if these works were created to impart security during this era of profound political and social change. Some appear to have suddenly arrived in our present time, battered and slightly comic messengers out of the ancient human past.Two are outfitted as dystopian astronauts, as if prepared to move us towards our perilous future.
