On display until May 5 at Stux Gallery, sculptress and watercolor artist Kathy Ruttenberg depicts a violent division between genders through the guise of fairy tale and romance. Through this lens, Ruttenberg uses narrative storytelling devices to treat the viewer to breathtaking artworks which demand discomfort, yet are familiar — evoking childhood’s natural darkness.

This show only runs until Saturday, but it’s a powerful exhibition full of the archetypes, hope, and sexual energies that are undercurrents to the human condition. One would do well to see this before it goes away.
