Jerald Melberg Gallery's exhibit examines the use of human shapes in diverse works by Romare Bearden (see his pictured collage, "Reunion"), Raul Diaz, Susan Grossman, Paul Resika, Manuel Reyna, Isabel Bishop, Chuck Close, and more. As the gallery's website explains, the show focuses on three main aspects of the figure in art: "where the figure is the subject, where the figure is central to the picture and where the figure is tertiary to the picture."
Continues through Nov. 13. Open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and by appointment. Jerald Melberg Gallery, 625 S. Sharon Amity Road. 704-365-3000. www.jeraldmelberg.com.
