'Accidentally profound'

From “Flights of Fancy,’’ by the late David A. Lang, at the Boston Sculptors Gallery.    The gallery says:    “The show, curated by Katherine French, includes Lang's signature kinetic pieces, which, when set off by motion detectors, come to life when closely inspected by viewers .  ‘Flights of Fancy’’ explores the whimsical - yet serious - nature of an artist who preferred to describe his efforts as ‘accidentally profound.’    “Join us at Boston Sculptors Gallery (486 Harrison Ave.) at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12 for a curator talk by Katherine French, director of Catamount Arts, in St. Johnsbury, Vt. French will offer thoughts on her relationship with Lang, an extraordinary sculptor she remembers as teacher, artist and friend. This event is offered in cooperation with the Boston Art Dealers Association, and is free and open to the public.’’
