At Opera Gallery, ‘Making Faces’ Offers an Eclectic Survey of Works

NEW YORK—There are a couple of clever sculptures at the Opera Gallery. “Making Faces,” a group show featuring artists from across the globe working in a variety of mediums includes pieces by David Mach composed of wire hangers and matches with purple heads. At first glance, you would never guess the materials used.

The exhibit concluded yesterday and was on view from Jan. 27 to Feb. 19, 2011.
