'Dark Harmony' at Auburn museum

"Dark Harmony," a large-scale fabricated steel structure by award winning artist Dorothy Dehner, is on exhibition in the Grand Gallery of Auburn University's Jules Collins Smith Museum.

"Although the sculpture is abstract in composition, its jagged shapes and totemic structure reflect natural forms, such as a dancer's gestures or the silhoutette of a tree," said museum director Marilyn Laufer.

She said the work "displays a lyrical quality not found in the work of many of Dehner's first generation abstract expressionist colleagues."

Dehner died in 1994 at the age of 92.
