Liquids and solids come together in Jack Nordby's ocean-inspired metal pieces.
The artist's love for the sea undulates through his metal etchings, and his waves are alive with life and color, according to a gallery release.
Nordby's work will be featured at Sargent's Fine Art, 802 Front St., Lahaina. He will appear at the gallery for a free, public reception from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday. Meet the artist and listen to the music of local performer Curt Lee.
