“The Boys of Summer: Second Inning”
July 15–August 28 (return to exhibition)

Newman glove
Ceramic sculpture with alkyd resin and beeswax glaze by Richard Newman

The second annual “Boys of Summer” exhibition and sale is an eclectic mix of baseball-themed works of contemporary art in wood, clay, glass, paint and steel.

Mark Sfirri has added a 2005 edition to his “Rejects From a Bat Factory” Series, as exhibited at the Smithsonian and Yale University art galleries. Painter and sculptor Paul Jacobsen applies his unique style to a tribute to Babe Ruth. Ceramic artist Richard Newman sets a new standard in the art of trompe l’oeil with his stoneware baseball gloves -- until actually touched, each piece appears to be a well-worn leather glove. Glass muralist Michael Dupille "paints" with glass particles to create scenes from a baseball game, and Rob Spinazzola creates large-scale cut steel sculptures of "the world's heaviest baseball cards," as exhibited in the Henry Ford Museum.
