Tom Kregel: A Life's Work in Three Dimensions 

When: Feb. 23-March 30 2013
As a sculptural material, cast stone has an uncertain nature. Once you recognize the material as stone, you have a little internal argument over whether what you're looking at was carved or not. Depending on the subject of the sculpture, that disorientation can bring illusionistic or surreal wonder. Both senses are present in Tom Kregel's late cast-stone sculptures of disembodied heads, weird pillars and wall hangings, and near-architectural shoes. Before his death in 2002, Kregel showed drawing, painting, welded steel, bronze casting, photography and sculpture throughout North Carolina, and his Tar Heel legacy includes art instruction at all levels. Craven Allen opens a retrospective of his work—much of which looks like it could be the basis for a Tim Burton thriller—along with paintings by Chad Hughes, a former student of Kregel's. —Chris Vitiello
