Response to Quarter Gallery

The Quarter Gallery was fascinating. There was one piece I seriously emotionally connected with, named "Grog" by Celestine Pueringer. It was my favorite work in the entire gallery. The greenish, brown and black bronze that sludged off of this sad looking man just gave me this dreaded feeling in the pit of my stomach. Although it wasn't the most pleasant of feelings it definitely succeeded in taking me somewhere just by looking at it. The bronze drops just symbolized how sometimes it feels like you work so hard for so long and it seems you hardly move. Perfectly titled "Grog".
