  • grayDUCK Gallery: Midas

    This year's "Eyes Got It!" winner Rachel Wolfson Smith presents her series of large graphite drawings, bringing medieval battles and fables into the modern age with stunning, monochrome beauty and power. "I interpret the allure and consequences of King Midas' wish as drawings of race scenes reminiscent of Renaissance battle paintings," says Smith, "and gold-leafed stars, like gilded icons, hovering in the night sky above expensive cars that lost control." We look on, thunderstruck – and reckon you will, too, citizen. Through Aug. 21
