Gallery 291: Art of the Photogravure.
Photographers: Unai San Martin, Mark Nelson, Inger Lise Rasmussen, Josephine Sacabo, Paul Taylor, Paul Strand, more.
Comment by AB: The photogravure printing process developed in the 19th century produces deep, rich, textural images. A select group of vintage and contemporary examples are on display here.
Fivepoints Arthouse: Comings and Goings.
Artists: Ryan Jones, Joshua Hagler, Ross Campbell, Erik Parra, Bert Bergen, Amanda Robinson, Heather Bernard, Lindsey Lyons, Jamie Spinello. Curated by Jessica Wallen.
Review by Anneliese Vobis: The artists explore various viewpoints that combine art, life and nature. A powerful, mysterious large-scale painting by Joshua Hagler contrasts with fragile collages and geometric ordered digital photographs. Abstract paintings balance loud encounters, creating a mellifluous dialogue between artworks. The site-specific installation blends harmoniously with the rustic art space.

Comment by AB: TechnoCRAFT "charts current movements blurring the boundary between designer and consumer" by examining "different ways that consumers are personalizing design in efforts to assert creativity and individuality in an age of mass-production." It's all about new design and new terminologies and you and me playing active rather than passive roles in the evolution of the products we use in our day to day lives. Fascinating show; definite go see.

BellJar: Kevin Scott Hailey - Win place show.
Review and images by Anneliese Vobis: The quiet back room gallery is the ideal place to experience Kevin Scott Hailey's work. Restless multi-layered 2D imagery invites closer investigation. The different sceneries aren't told by words but rather by the artist's unique style. His interwoven works envision a wonderful strange cosmos-- really worth a look.

Curated By Sarah Smith & Andy Vogt.
Review by Anneliese Vobis: Junk Mail takes us on a stroll through the jungle of that constant bombardment by consumerism-- Junk Mail. This inundation of information guides and informs us around the clock; there is no escaping it in our modern society, and this is exactly the message the curator confronts us with. The artworks range from chunky paper meat sculpture and giant plastic straws to architectural statistics. No shortage of Food for Thought to see ane experience here...
Comment by AB: Depressingly entertaining show drives home how we interminably wallow in consumerist crap-- plus super affordable prices starting at as little as $3.99 with nothing over $299.95. Sales are brisk; go for it!

Artists: Jhina Alvarado, Howie Katz, Lucky Rapp, Mike Campbell, Rebekah Goldstein, Aximillion Duson, Scott Inguito, Lindsay Kustusch, Ytaelena Lopez, Oana Barac-Matei, Chelsea Meuhe, Cheryl Morgan, Beth Mullins, William Ullrich.
Review and images by Anneliese Vobis: Abiding by the title, Landscape Re-Visited, the artwork embraces a wide range of media. Nicely framed oil paintings, intriquing multimedia collages, eye-catching wooden treasure boxes and many more exciting projects make for a treasure hunt through this artists' collective space.
