‘Stone Gravy’: Matt Wedel at Ameringer McEnery Yohe

NEW YORK—The largest rock formation is pink. A cactus-like botanical sprouts from the yellow one. Saturated in orange and yellow, a small boy is balancing atop the green one. Matt Wedel‘s scientific aberrations are a part of “Stone Gravy,” a group exhibit featuring nine artists at Ameringer McEnery Yohe. On view in the front gallery, his trio is staged as the opening act. Curated and titled under the concept that the contributions of the collective will elevate the product beyond the capabilities of the individual, Wedel’s uncanny sculptures hold their own.

“Stone Gravy” is curated by David Pagel and includes work by Polly Apfelbaum, Brad Eberhard, Annie Lapin, Kim MacConnel, Allison Miller, Richard Allen Morris, Ron Nagle, David Reed and Wedel. The exhibit is on view from May 31 to July 7, 2012.
