Old Dominion University Gallery opens a new exhibition of sculpture by Ben Schachter, Jason Engelhardt and Heather Jones with a reception at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 16.

The exhibition, which continues through Aug. 21, and the reception are free and open to the public.

The title of the show, "Trope," the figure of speech describing the nonliteral meaning of a word or words, reflects Schachter, Engelhardt and Jones' metaphorical use of familiar materials in unfamiliar applications.

Schachter, a teacher at Adelphi University in Garden City, N.Y., uses electrical hardware to form household furniture and other objects. Jones, adjunct professor at Rochester Institute of Technology, creates glass sculpture that appears as flasks, stills and laboratory equipment displayed in mid-experiment. Minnesota State University teacher Jason Engelhardt uses chalkboards, children's clothing and classroom objects to create a world other than the pedagogical.

The University Gallery, located at 350 W. 21st., Norfolk, is open noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; noon to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday. For more information call 683-2355 or go to http://www.odu.edu/al/art/gallery/.
