Tangent Contemporary Art: Chas McFeely - Don't Tase Me Bro

Comment by AB: What do you get when you take nondescript 19th century portrait paintings and retrofit them with snapback caps? This. Nonsensical premise; hilarious results. Stop on by.

Andrea Schwartz Gallery: Robin Kandel - The 45th Parallel

Comment by AB: The 45th parallel is located halfway between the North Pole and the Equator. It also happens to run through Traverse City, MI, a place Robin Kandel recently visited. This show is about both real and conceptual aspects of that journey and experience.

Dog Eared Books in the Castro: Jason Mecier - Real Housewives of Macaroni

Comment by AB: Jason Mecier recreates Real Housewives TV personalities with beans and pasta. The frames are embellished with edibles as well. As outrageous as they are good. What's for lunch? Art of course.
