Catharine Clark Gallery: Kara Maria - Post-Nature
Comment by AB: Birds, animals and other living things somehow manage to survive in the most tenuous, tumultuous and unnatural of environments. Look close enough and you'll find them. How long they can manage to maintain is primarily up to us. Worth a visit.

Hosfelt Gallery: Birgit Jensen - What a Perfect Combination; Angelina Pwerle - Time and Space
Comment by AB: Birgit Jensen illuminates up her landscapes in hallucinatory ways and may occasionally accent them up with just a dash of anarchy (only the artist knows for sure). On close inspection, the paint appears to be applied by some kind of printmaking process, possibly screen printing. Also on the docket, aboriginal artist Angelina Pwerle's reality is more cosmic, her interstellar compositions profusely populated with countless minuscule dots. Good show on both counts.

Casemore Kirkeby: Stutter Shutter - Whitney Hubbs
Comment by AB: Aluminum foil, painter's tape, a poly tarp, a wet sheet, and sundry mundanities like that, with an occasional torso mixed in, make for some rather admirable photographs. Stop on by.
