April 29 - June 6, 2014 Fore Play series
Fore Play is a quadruple entendre: a group of four sculptures by local metal sculptor Jonathan Quick, inspired by four friends trying to play the game of golf.

The inspiration for the series came to Quick during an episode last year in which he and three of his colleagues decided to take up golf. The most enthusiastic member of the group was Alex Ilich, a recent immigrant from Serbia, for whom golf represented the good life in America. Ilich inspired Quick’s decision to play. Although he eagerly took up the challenge, little did Quick know what difficult challenges are posed by the game.
