Al LaVergne: Sequences

November 21 – December 30, 2013

Netzorg and Kerr Permanent Collection Gallery


This exhibition will focus LaVergne's new awareness of his Nigerian Roots.  These new sculptures will not address traditional African images, but speak of the impact that the ten months Fulbright Experience in Nigeria had on his confidence as an artist and a person.  Al hopes his vocabulary in these works will express new ineffable nuances which celebrates life. LaVergne's exhibition also celebrates his extraordinary teaching career at Western Michigan University's Frostic School of Art.
