A natural pairing

ARTWORK BY HENRY WESSELS

A natural pairing

Make the right selection, go see Natural Selections: Smith and Wessels in Evolution, an exhibit by sculptor Henry Wessels and printmaker Donald E. Smith, through Nov. 2, at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art. The exhibit title is both a reference to the personal evolution of the artists, as well as a tip of the hat to Charles Darwin, who is showcased in their work. Not attending this event may result in your extinction. For further details, go to sloma.org.
