    Thin Spaces: Seeking Nature’s Ethereal Conduits

    This three-person show of visual art at the venerable Dougherty Arts Center suggests ways in which “the natural world can serve as a conduit to a deeper understanding of the ethereal,” divulging liminal places where material and spirit intertwine. Local and simultaneously beyond locale, the layered oil abstractions of Rebecca Bennett, the stunningly manipulated photography of Leslie Kell, and Elena Lipkowski’s digital collages embellished with hand-stitched embroidery shift the gallery’s walls toward wonder and may open your doors of perception into a realm that’s downright seelie.

    "The collaborative back-and-forth between artists Robert Hodge and Tim Kerr is as compelling and intriguing for what is on display as for what is not. This exhibition presents the vivid yet amorphous residue of a contested, negotiated, and ultimately collaborative chronicle. It gathers swatches of 20th- and 21st-century history as recounted by artists from different generations and backgrounds, who share as many crossovers as they do variations."

    Carver Museum: Two Births and the Afterlife

    You think it’s easy, being somebody’s mother? You think giving birth to another human being doesn’t put your own humanity and purpose under some fierce self-scrutiny? Milwaukee-based artist Aimée M. Everett, in her solo show at the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center, uses abstraction, minimalist line-making, saturated colors, and melodic compositions to explore “the profound transformations experienced during childbirth and the subsequent journey of self-discovery into motherhood.” Word – or, more appropriately, image – to your mother. – Wayne Alan Brenner

    Cool Day

    A two-person exhibition centered on early Aughts-style internet collage opened Jan. 13 and can be seen Fridays and Saturdays through early February. Mia Scarpa’s mixed-media paintings conjure the edge of 2000s chatrooms and 3D-rendered JPEGs, while Grace Horan’s playful sculptures reference childhood friendships and I Spy books. The gallery press release teases, “Their images and objects evoke an ethos of collecting that animates everything from official archives to family photo albums to online image boards. The result of such an experience is a schizophrenic reading of images that hardly make sense together – except in the fact that they do.”– Lina Fisher

And you do need a laugh or two, right about this time, don't you, citizen? (And how about a margarita to go with that?) We'd add that the mind-boggling illusions of magician Ray Anderson are a bonus in the night's clever spectacle … but, the way that arch maestro conjures mystery and delight, "bonus" would be an insult.

    Loverboy: Portraits on Vinyl by Rick Fleming

    Back in 2020, Rick Fleming helped then-presidential hopeful Joe Biden campaign for the top spot by selling tote bags adorned with the politician’s portrait. Now, the local artist turns his attention to more musical inspirations, from Prince and David Bowie to Björk and Taylor Swift. United by his signature full eyes and round nostrils, Fleming’s homages take a more abstract approach to his subjects’ likeness – though accompanying lyrics, like to Queen’s namesake 1976 classic, give each piece away. Visit Springdale’s SAGE Studio Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to see Fleming’s paintings on vinyl discs – or buy one yourself for $200 a pop. – Carys Anderson
