See Snohomish artist Paul Vexler’s abstract wood sculptures on display Feb. 16-March 5 at Everett Community College’s Russell Day Gallery. The exhibit includes several large sculptures that stand 5 to 8 feet tall and sketches showing Vexler’s design process. He often creates new tools and methods for his sculptures. “I want people to approach my work and feel compelled to walk around it and view it from different angles. I want them to walk around it two or three times because the work is helping them to learn to see things that they missed the first time. And most of all, I want them to experience the pleasure of seeing something beautiful,” Vexler said.
