Beware of an alligator lurking in the lily pads, a dragon in flight in the branches, a hippopotamus emerging from a pool of marble, a steam engine spuming huge curls of wired smoke, a matriarch of parts, a clan reunion in bark, a steel I-beam, and many more works of art.

Entitled On & Off the Wall ~ Sculpture: Art in 3 Dimensions, the exhibition is comprised of 56 sculptures by 29 sculptors in sizes 6 inches to 9 feet, and various media including wood, iron, steel, marble, ceramic, bronze, copper, textile, clay, stoneware, plaster, terracotta, and found objects.
