The Only Constant

Scientist and prolific author Isaac Asimov once wrote, “The only constant is change,” explaining that humankind cannot progress without weighing present-day convenience against future consequences. Life is a balancing act, after all. Observe a visual interpretation of life’s equilibrium with In a Sea of Change, an exhibit through January 11 at Wonder Fair: Art Gallery & How! (803 Massachusetts, below the Casbah Market in Lawrence). Featuring works by Topeka artist Justin Marable, the show explores the notion of change and the balancing act between good and bad, beautiful and ugly. According to Marable, true change requires “innovation, imagination, creativity, optimism and action, along with the willpower of people to transform ideas into reality.” The gallery is open Thursdays through Saturdays from noon to 9 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. For more information, see wonderfair.com.

Thursdays-Saturdays, 12-9 p.m.; Sundays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: Jan. 3. Continues through Jan. 11, 2009
