    Raw Paw Gallery: Notes From a Windowless Room

    "These paintings," says Nadia Waheed, "are an effort to form a bridge between my Pakistani heritage and my westernization, primarily by exploring the brown female nude." Several large works by Waheed adorn the delightful Raw Paw space over there in the Yard on St. Elmo, and – tell you what – if every creative "effort" were as well-wrought and lovely to behold as these paintings, the whole world would be a better place to have eyes in.
    Reception: Fri., Feb. 15, 7pm-12mid
