In “Head On,” Beardsley presents a new series of sculptural heads, preserving gestural moments in clay. Some confront viewers with their monolithic scale and mass, while others pull viewers in for a more intimate interaction. They are inspired by human expression, emotion and play.

Sponsored by SU Art Galleries, admission is free and the public is invited. Gallery hours are noon-6 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, noon-4 p.m. Saturday, other times by appointment.
