Scott Richards Contemporary Art: Peter and Madeline Powell - All Piled Up
Comment by AB: Unbelievably accomplished paintings by the husband/wife team of Peter and Madeline Powell feature oodles of stuff that make life fun like squirt guns, candy, hot sauce and toys. I can hardly believe these are 100% hand-painted. To eliminate all doubt (and I'm sure the doubts of others as well), Scott Richards demonstrates great foresight by displaying an unfinished painting on a chair in his office for anyone to inspect. Color me convinced. If you appreciate pure unadulterated skill and don't mind amusing yourself to boot, see this show.

Dolby Chadwick Gallery: Robert Kingston
Comment by AB: Sometimes less is more. Sometimes you can say a lot with a little. Sometimes a minimal composition allows for maximal interpretation. Your call.

Anglim Gilbert Gallery: Constellated - Jean Conner, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Gay Outlaw; Jim Melchert - Channel Series
Comment by AB: In the main gallery, see vintage collage and mixed media works by Jean Conner and Lynn Hershman Leeson along with my pick, a new group of photographs with cast glass overlays by Gay Outlaw. Gay Outlaw doesn't make a mountain of art, but what she does make is notable in its range and diversity, consistently original, oddly engaging, often entertaining and always quality. Like it! In the anteroom gallery, Jim Melchert continues his ongoing affair with embellishing the fractures in cracked porcelain tiles. Worth stopping by.

Gregory Lind Gallery: Jim Gaylord - Redivider
Comment by AB: Gregory Lind must occasionally be commended for his abiding allegiance to penning some of the finest, most impenetrable mumbo jumbo show statements around. They're pure unadulterated synapse abuse. So as a public service for those of you who only speak English, Jim Gaylord creates cut painted paper collages with a depth and seduction that invites viewers to walk right in. Check 'em out if you get a chance.
