    Catharine Clark Gallery: Chris Doyle - Hollow and Swell

    Comment by AB: Chris Doyle riffs on Thomas Cole's "Course of Empire" from a Digital Era perspective, mainly in video, but the dude can paint as well. Good show.

    Brian Gross Fine Art: Marco Casentini - Streetlights

    Comment by AB: Vibrant multicolored dense layered shapes are actualized in plexiglas, aluminum, acrylic and collage. Energize any interior with these.

    Hosfelt Gallery: Far Away Up Close - Jim Campbell

    Comment by AB: Yet another de-LIGHT-ful display of hyper-pixilated videos and image overlays. Subject matters include the Women's March on Washington, splitting a crowd by standing stationary and videoing people navigating around him, and more. Always worth seeing.

    Nancy Toomey Fine Art: Claire Burbridge - Night Garden

    Comment by AB: Labyrinthine pen and ink drawings are rich with imagery, sometimes obvious, other times you have to get really up close and seek them out. Either way, you win. Good show.
