The Stowe Vase: From Ancient Art to Additive Manufacturing presents three extraordinary objects side-by-side: the ancient Roman Stowe vase, reconstituted during the 18th century from fragments (and represented in an etching by 18th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Battista Piranesi); a second version in silver by leading silversmith of the English Regency era, Paul Storr (1770–1844), and a 2016 computer-designed, 3D-printed artwork by Michael Eden. Each varies by medium as well as moment in history, allowing the viewer to compare interpretations of a highly distinctive design across two millennia.

The success of Helen Rae provides an inspiring example of how a prolific artist can emerge late in life with no connection to - and little awareness of - the conventional art world.
Her drawings, in colored pencil and graphite, are immediately striking for their vivid imagery, resonant use of color and innovative reworking of source material. Using fashion advertisements as a point of departure for otherworldly journeys into the subconscious, Helen transforms the original images into something uniquely expressive that possesses a strange beauty and power. The refashioned figures of willowy models often seem to be emerging out of or disappearing into a luxuriant abstraction created by a complex interweaving of fabric and foliage.
One series in the show features depictions of Los Angeles artists and artworks taken from a photo shoot, in which such familiar sights as Chris Burden’s MOCA streetlight installation and the looming, pensive figure of John Baldessari are rendered almost unrecognizable in a most beguiling way.
Helen works out of the First Street Gallery, a progressive art studio for adults with developmental disabilities in Claremont, California. Her sold-out show at the Good Luck Gallery last spring introduced a singular 76-year-old talent in the field of visionary art, and the gallery is delighted to present another solo show featuring entirely new work.
