It's safe to assume that painter Tracy Stuckey isn't rushing out to buy Ralph Lauren's latest collection. In an interpretation of what historian Michael Johnson calls the “Ralphlaurenization” of the American West, Stuckey satirically examines how outsiders perceive the West: a world of cowboys, guns, and livestock. Juxtaposed against sculptor Bale Creek Allen's bronze replicas of Western symbols (tumbleweeds, tire tracks) Refashioned Fables becomes a distinct and wholly modern exploration of the iconic West. Tue-Sat, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
