Ratio 3 Gallery: Takeshi Murata - Midnight.
Comment by AB: Hypnotically riveting is the best way to describe Takeshi Murata's sinister sunless video, OM Rider. Murata materializes an ambiguous animated reality that you can practically dive right into and inhabit... if you dare. Excellent work. Go see.

John Pence Gallery: Travis Schlaht & Edward Minoff.
Comment by AB: This month's doubleheader consists of thirty paintings done over the past two years by Travis Schlaht while he was living in Paris, and a varied selection by Edward Minoff including still lifes, seascapes, portrait paintings and more. Good art on both counts. Wort a visit.

Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art: Heidi Norton - Light in the Dark.
Review by Anneliese Vobis: Natural phenomena trapped in unnatural processes result in exciting contrasts of interesting scenarios based on biological and anthropological concepts. Inspiring fresh new art that matters and speaks to our roots, sweetly enveloped in poetic writings and not copied from already existing work.
