Arthur Ganson, whose exhibit of moving sculptures at Waterfall Arts has been very popular, will talk about his work Thursday, July 28 at 7 p.m. at Waterfall Arts, 256 High St. A suggested donation of $7 will be taken at the door; students are admitted free.

Ganson has exhibited internationally and has a permanent revolving display at MIT in Boston.  Creating kinetic sculptures for more than 30 years, he started making his work move because he found he was “most interested in the state of becoming.” His machines have been featured in such diverse settings as the Long Now Foundation seminars, the band Dead Man’s Bones music video, TED talks and the Phaeno Science Centre in Wolfsburg, Germany.  Ganson said that he starts with some idea from deep inside himself, and then “wrestles the idea or question into physicality.”

The Ganson exhibit in the arts center’s Clifford Gallery runs through Friday, July 29. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturdays from 1 to 5 p.m.; and by appointment. For more information on classes, exhibits and events, call 338-2222, visit or find it on Facebook.
