The photo-collages in Vikky Alexander's first show at Wilding Cran Gallery, titled Theatergarden Bestiarium, are spare. In each, one or more cutout images of toy animals are overlaid onto a photo of a sumptuous historical site devoid of people.

The title of Brendan Donnelly's first exhibition at Paul Loya Gallery, "How To Be A Magician In Your Spare Time," is something of a misnomer--the show has little to do with magic. However, the emptiness of the titular promise is itself an ironic trick in keeping with the artist's skepticism of magisterial charlatanry.

Mining Creativity From a Secondhand Store: The Clayton Brothers at Mark Moore Gallery

Many painters feel burdened by the baggage of art history. Others feel a sense of responsibility to further its academic progress and expand its continuum. Still others choose to ignore it. For someone who is so engaged with art historical imagery, Klamen has a remarkably laissez-faire attitude towards it

Though Zhenya Gershman dislikes using props that distract from the purity of the body, in her most recent paintings she added the element of wings.
