Play the Symbols


Chuck Webster deals in concrete representation of symbols, but not in any recognizable capacity: The subject of his large-scale paintings is the terrain of his own inner life. The observer may recognize something familiar in Webster's imagery, but there's nothing concrete to pin down with name or meaning. The result is a body of work that invites personal interpretation -- and re-interpretation -- while remaining steadfastly personal, secret and hermetic. Chuck Webster: Little Big Paintings opens with a free public reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, November 16, at Philip Slein Gallery (4735 McPherson Avenue; 314-361-2617 or The show remains up through Friday, December 21, and the gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 16. Continues through Dec. 21, 2012
