Matthew Flegle, adjunct instructor and exhibitions manager, repurposes traditional building materials in his first solo exhibition, No Shelter, on display through Dec. 1 at the Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in Cincinnati.

“Many of my sculptural constructions simulate or morph vernacular American shelters such as trailers, camper shells, and backyard storage sheds, and are built from materials associated with home renovation projects,” Flegle wrote in his artist statement.

The exhibition features three new sculptures by Flegle that combine his interest in structures and figurative subjects with continuing investigations into complex human conditions.

The Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery is located in The Aronoff Center for the Arts, 650 Walnut St., Cincinnati, 45202. Gallery hours are Tuesday–Saturday 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m. and Sunday 12–5 p.m.
