SOMArts Main Gallery presents Totally Unrealistic, an investigation into the concepts and forms of abstract artwork by Cecil C. Childress (www.tazioart.com), Ralph Joachim, and Marilyn Kuksht (www.kuksht.com).  Sculptor Kuksht transforms iron and steel into twisting and arching abstract forms that represent a massive history of American post-minimal metal sculpture.  The work of Childress and Joachim, both painters, provide counterpoints to the weighty metal works of Kuksht, enticing the viewer to consider the concept, diversity, value, and meaning in abstract art today.
