    Davis Gallery: Earth, Land, Property

    This five-person exhibit features work by Nicholas Baxter, Julie Davis, David Leonard, Garrett Middaugh, and Jason Webb. "This show intends to question our place among nature and how we've chosen to use our land." Right on – an important consideration, even if you're not part of the Dark Mountain movement, even if you don't have three oxgangs of good earth when the haeric star appears. Also, tbh, we're partial to anything painted by that D. Leonard.

    Russell Collection Fine Art: Yang & Yun

    Three artists with Eastern roots blend ancient techniques with Western influences "to reveal a highly curated collection of art that goes deeper than the canvas." In Joeng and Choon Yun’s case, the canvas is bark from South Korean Dak trees, put through a 2,000-year-old process of boiling, beating, cleaning, and drying. Rimi Yang’s artistic style also bridges the cultural divide with Japanese block print and 19th-century portraiture.
