    20 DEER 20: Book Release Party

    You may recall Valerie Fowler's recent "The Story of the Deer In the Road" show at CAMIBAart Gallery? It was an exhibition of the artist's gorgeously complex paintings about her encounters with deer, and her friend Robin Chotzinoff performed 20 short responses to the artwork during receptions for the show. Now our friends at Minerva's Wreck have gone and published an elegant limited-edition chapbook of Chotzinoff's poetic responses – and the author and the artist are releasing it to the public at a reception in Fowler's studio, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit the Flower Hill Urban Homestead Museum, and you're invited.

    Dear Evan Hansen

    A letter that was never meant to be seen; a lie that was never meant to be told; a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in, in this "deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it." Right?
    Through Dec. 15. Thu.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm; Sun., 1 & 7pm. $44-154.

    Wally Workman Gallery: Ashley Benton and Christopher Lee Gilmer

    "Inspired by datamoshing, quantum mechanics, and the hyper saturation of imagery found in daily life, Gilmer creates oil paintings that explore the psychological effects of the figure through physical mutations that distort and merge various realities. Benton's figurative ceramics also portray a dialogue of the human condition, using symbolism as well as physical mutations to explore the depths of the subconscious. Less than reality and more than a dream, Benton and Gilmer’s work strives to give the viewer an alternative connection to the self." Note: This stuff will burrow into your optic nerves and make you feel a little weird, maybe, about the odd beauty it contains. So, yes: recommended.
    Through Jan. 5
