Sin and Salvation Reconsidered: Fran Carlson & Lisa Easton

When: Sept. 8-Oct. 18 2014

There's loads of art in the Western canon devoted to the seven deadly sins. First for didactic purposes, but also because it allowed artists to get a little raunchy and creative, often building wheels that pictured slaves of lust, gluttony and rage. Cool. But what about the seven virtues? You know, temperance, humility, kindness? Frances Carlson and Lisa Easton noticed a lack of attention given to the virtues, and question that in their new show at Coburn Gallery (inside Worner Student Center, 902 N. Cascade Ave., theideaspace.com), Sin and Salvation Reconsidered, which opens with a gallery talk at 4:30 today. Don't expect much figurative art; these works meditate on the concepts by way of abstraction and sculpture. — Edie Adelstein
