Somewhat surreal, too, is Clymer's ceramic, acrylic and encaustic “Growth Cylinder,” a log-like column with holes in it through which pointed, worm-like creatures seem to be emerging.

Even more charmingly creepy and provocative is Clymer's “The Early Wurm Gets the Bird,” a graphite and acrylic depiction on panel of a worm-like creature emerging from the ground to menace flying white water birds.

For her part, Bradway combines ornate, deftly executed graphite drawings and sculptural elements with what appear to be small bird and animal skulls in her mixed media wooden wall hangings.

A white animal skull seems to be poised over the top of a triangular mountain, with gesturing hand-antlers, like a bizarre wall trophy, in Bradway's “The End is the Beginning Again,” to name a case in point.

The exhibit is highly recommended during its run.
