In Power Play, Charlotte Becket and Mary-Ann Monforton offer an exhibition of two women sculptors who pose two very different approaches to examining the human condition and questioning the status quo. Musing on expectation and futility, banality, and pathos is at play, as well as a healthy dose of humor.
