Andrea Schwartz Gallery: Gugger Petter - Reversal of Interest.
Comment by AB: Danish artist Gugger Petter weaves and ties sections of rolled newspapers into elaborate portraits and abstracts. The facial expressions and demeanors of her portraits often hark back to Old Master and Renaissance poses. Worth seeing.

Comment by AB: This exhibition examines the influence of Jewish artists, designers and architects on everything from furnishings, fabrics, ceramics and tableware to album covers and movie credits. Your typical design show focuses on the same old iconic furniture and decorative arts as every other design show. This one journeys more into more esoteric realms, particularly with respect to showing books, magazines and printed materials of the era. If you're a modern design and decorative arts aficionado (which I definitely am), this show's for you.
