    Visual Arts

    Wally Workman Gallery: Juan Luis Jardi

    Mark our words: You want to see what this talented man can do with oils on big swaths of canvas. Realism? Yes, but magical realism. Understated, quotidian, almost melancholy – except maybe there's been a quiet little rupture between this universe and another slightly different one, hasn't there?
    Through Jan. 27
