    Visual Arts

    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
