Strange faces, strange places
If you want to see an art show of brightly colored prints and paintings that involve subject matter that’s a little offbeat, then the Solomon Dubnick Gallery has a show for you. This Second Saturday kicks off with Trouble in Wonderland, new work by Mark Bryan, and Trouble Out of the Suburbs, new work by Mick Sheldon. Bryan’s paintings are born from fantasy—full of robots, spaceships and other unusual subjects traditionally more geared for comic books, but the sophistication of his application elevates his work to a higher level of appreciation. Sheldon’s work is less fantasy-driven but equally fun and playful. Scenes that would normally be mundane are transformed into insightful, caricature-ish and—in the form of his prints—quite skilled depictions. The show runs through March 3 at the Solomon Dubnick Gallery, 2131 Northrop Ave. Call 920-4547 for more information.
