John Pence Gallery: Adam Forfang; Jonathan Koch.
Comment by AB: Still-lifes, figure paintings, cityscapes portraits, trompe l'oeils and more by Adam Forfang. For you detail connoisseurs, he paints a really good nail hole. Jonathan Koch meanwhile, paints up some spiffy baseball still-lifes. Sidle on by.

Luggage Store Gallery: Brett Goodroad - What Imaginist Knew.
Comment by AB: Showcase for this year's Tournesol Award winner Brett Goodroad who melds action painting, impressionism, performance and various creative vagueries into compositions that give you just enough to get you started, but beyond that are open to a healthy range of interpretations.

Arc Gallery & Studios: Sweet & Subversive - Contemporary Feminist Craft Exhibition.
Artists: Ellen Greene, Mary O'Brien, Forrest Solis, Cait Spera, Shalene Valenzuela, Jennifer Weigel.
Comment by AB: Five feminist artists make art with a message. My favorite? Forrest Solis split-screen commentaries combine past with present with a dash of erotica to remind us how far we've come... and how far we've yet to go. Check it out.

Needles & Pens: Dave King's Odd Alcove - A Solo Show and book release for "The Secret Origins of the Crass Symbol."
Comment by AB: The show's title pretty much says it all. The fare is mainly a combination of Dave King's photography and symbology, particularly relating to the logo he created for the Punk Rock group Crass. During the course of his distinguished career, he's been a musician, illustrator, graphic designer and more. Good stuff.
