The Documentation Sculptures of Apollo Jones 

An Oregon native, Apollo Jones is perhaps best known for his work as a member of the Plank School, a movement dedicated almost exclusively to wood and its derivatives as their medium of expression. This exhibit highlights his 1975 series Divining Daphne, eleven figural sculptures representing the classical Greek nymph Daphne, her flight from danger, and self-transmogrification into a laurel tree to escape the unwanted advances of an amorous god.
