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 10 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. Free and open to the public. The Albertine Monroe-Brown Gallery is located at the Richmond Center for Visual Arts, Gwen Frostic School of Art, Western Michigan University. Gallery hours are 10am to 6pm Monday through Thursday, 10am to 9pm on Fridays, and 12pm to 6pm on Saturdays. Closed on Sundays.
