ART: SOMArts Main Gallery presents Totally Unrealistic, an investigation into the concepts and forms of abstract artwork by sculptor Cecil C. Childress, using iron and steel, and the paintings of Ralph Joachim and Marilyn Kuksht, which provide counterpoints to the weighty metal works of Kuksht, "enticing the viewer to consider the concept, diversity, value, and meaning in abstract art today."
