Work shirts as art and commentary; visual static defined by its mood; and simple portraits elevated by acid orange, glitter and little red “seekers.”
Becky Suss, Richard Tinkler and Robert Bordo get solo shows, and “My Country Tis of Thy People, You’re Dying” spotlights Native American artists.
Dona Nelson’s maze of contrasting viewpoints, Rochelle Goldberg’s evocation of suffering and Sara Cwynar’s slick photography.
Christoph Ruckhäberle’s “Netsuke,” Nikki Maloof’s nocturnal animals, Dan Herschlein’s haunting interiors, Ara Peterson’s painted wood chips, and Gabriel Hartley and the squishy.
