ART | "Universal Magnetic" 

AXOM Gallery (176 Anderson Avenue, second floor) recently opened "Universal Magnetic" an exhibition of new works by Rochester-based artist St. Monci, who is part of The Sweet Meat Co. and a WALL\THERAPY alum. In this body of work, Monci focuses on "the push/pull phenomenon of magnetism — a force observed through all objects in space," says curator Margot Muto, in a provided statement.

Known for his kinetic exploration of color and form, St. Monci has lately been incorporating typographical elements into his imagery, forming playful phrases ("Roc City," "Can I kick it?" and "Word.") from bright shapes and linear elements. The end result, mixed in with beautifully balanced abstractions, is a seriously fresh-looking body of design work.

The show continues through July 3. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and until 9 p.m. on First Fridays. For more information, call 232-6030, or visit
