In a new solo show, artist Kate Silvio — a woman “on the cusp of what society defines as ‘middle age,’” according to a press release — offers new works that reflect upon aging, self-acceptance, and motherhood. “How did I get here?” Silvio writes in an artist statement. “Was it an action or a reaction? The realization is that you may not be able to recall the exact moment when you made these decisions, but it must be you who made them.” The sculptor, a College for Creative Studies alum who now lives in Grand Rapids, creates multimedia works made from metals, rubber, felt, and wood, among other materials.

Kate Silvio: "You Can Never Go Home Again" Opening reception runs 6 p.m.-8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Simone DeSousa Gallery; 444 W. Willis St. Units 111 & 112 Detroit; 313-833-9000;; Admission is free. Through Nov. 24.
