A Southwest School of Art professor who also co-directs the cooperative studio/gallery hybrid Clamp Light, artist Sarah T. Roberts often references the childhood trauma of her mother’s death in draped installations crafted from women’s garments, and powder-coated aluminum sculptures that resemble lace masks. Building from her own interest in ways metalsmithing “overlaps with and questions the boundaries between sculpture, performance and body adornment,” Roberts has organized “Intersecting Boundaries,” a group show uniting Kat Cole, Sarah Holden, Tova Lund and Renée Zettle-Sterling. Bound in part by conceptual approaches to jewelry, the quartet touches on an unusual array of themes, methods and media — including enamel and steel neckpieces and sculptural constructions (Kat Cole), lace-like brooches and large-scale “soot drawings” inspired by Queen Elizabeth I (Sarah Holden), heavy found-object jewelry addressing equally heavy subject matter (Tova Lund) and “Western culture’s relationship with death and mourning” (Renée Zettle-Sterling). Free, 7-10pm Fri, Apr. 14, Clamp Light Artist Studios & Gallery, 1704 Blanco Road, Suite 104, (620) 218-1568, clamplightsa.com.
