What’s the saying? A picture says a thousand words, but granite says it better? OK, it may not have caught on just yet, but in its latest exhibition Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery breaks its tradition of photo-based work to feature large-scale granite sculpture by Jesús Moroles. A native Texan and world-renowned artist, Morales uses granite almost exclusively. And no, he won’t do your counter tops. If you want to ask him anyway, swing by the artist reception at PDNB, 1202 Dragon St., Suite 103, at 5 p.m. Saturday. Or stop in the gallery anytime through May to see his mastery of the stone. It’s open Tuesday through Saturday and always free.
Sat., Feb. 22, 11 a.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m. Starts: Feb. 22. Continues through May 31, 2014
