Trifecta Gallery "From the Street" by Tom Pfannerstill, "Satur(n)day" They've been kicked, driven over, torn, crumpled, oil stained and water damaged. They've rusted and wrinkled. And this is their story, told in the dirt-smudged marks of their journey. ¶ Call it the never-ending ballad of ephemera—Tom Pfannerstill's hyper-realistic, three-dimensional portraits of the detritus littering the streets and parking lots of America. In the Kentucky artist's hands, a candy wrapper, a crushed and empty pack of cigarettes and a flattened cardboard box become sitting models for the lifelike wood-carved and painted portraits. ¶ His From the Street series returns to Trifecta this month, baffling gallery visitors believing that actual garbage has been pinned to the wall. "He's the master of patina," says gallery owner Marty Walsh, eying "Paper Oil Funnel," a 5–by-5.5-inch sculpture of a very dirty funnel, which, unlike the other works in the gallery, exists without the MORE 'FROM THE STREET' color-rich graphics of brand-name products. "This one's the most decadent." ¶ In archival fashThrough October 25; Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Thursion, each work contains on its back a small note stating when and where it was found. Whether it's a leather work glove, rusting metal or notebook paper (a young student's written love letter), day, 11 a.m.-8 p.m., Saturday & Sunday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Trifecta Gallery, 366-7001.
