14 Rural Absurdities by Tom Huck
June 4–August 11, 2013

The series of large woodcut prints forming this exhibition were created by the Missouri artist Tom Huck (American, b. 1971). These prints are based on events that allegedly occurred in the artist’s boyhood hometown of Potosi, Mo. While true stories are at the heart of the prints, the viewer may find these tales as told by Huck hard to believe. Humorous and provocative, Huck’s interpretations poke fun at his subjects while presenting a complex view of the foibles and flaws of people.
