John Pence Gallery: Jeremy Mann.
Comment by AB: Virtuoso artist Jeremy Mann can paint pretty much whatever he wants... and splendidly well at that. His elaborate impressionist cityscapes are marvels to connoisseurs of the discipline. Why? 'Cuz they're thoroughly realistic at a distance but as you zero on in, they progressively diffuse into complete abstractions. As you peruse the show, you notice that his influences likely include Jean Leon Gerome (or maybe William-Adolphe Bouguereau), Emil Carlsen and Antonio Mancini among others). Excellent work and definitely worth seeing.

Alter Space: What's Left Behind.
Artists: Zina Al-Shukri, Alexis Arnold, William Emmert, Julian Farmers-Bowers, Meghan Martin, Maja Ruzniz, Esther Samuels-Davis, Cianna Valley, Imin Yeh, COLPA Press.
Comment by AB: To enhance the show, the gallery's walls have been plastered over with 700 conjoined prints to make it look like an abandoned house. The letdown is that though the art is supposedly indicative of what abandoners leave behind, a number of the participating artists do pretty much the same art that they do no matter where they're showing. If it's themed, play to the theme. Don't simply take the art you make already make and cognitively reconfigure it to match whatever parameters they've set for you. Gimme an experience, not a rehash.
