Fore Play is a quadruple entendre: a group of four sculptures by local metal sculptor Jonathan Quick, inspired by four friends trying to play the game of golf.

The inspiration for the series came to Quick during an episode last year in which he and three of his colleagues decided to take up golf. The most enthusiastic member of the group was Alex Ilich, a recent immigrant from Serbia, for whom golf represented the good life in America. Ilich inspired Quick’s decision to play. Although he eagerly took up the challenge, little did Quick know what difficult challenges are posed by the game.   Quick has been teaching and creating sculpture at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio for 28 years. His Four Play sculptures are fabricated from one-half-inch stainless steel and stainless golf clubs.

Fore Play is on view with the exhibition Jenny Fine – Flat Granny and Me: A Suspension of Disbelief and opens with an artists’ reception Tuesday, April 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Dublin Arts Council, 7125 Riverside Dr., in Dublin. The exhibition will remain on view through June 6. The reception and the exhibition are free of charge. Gallery hours are Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
