  • Len Prince: Jessie Mann "Self-Possessed"
    • "Len Prince and Jessie Mann first met in 2001. He was a photographer looking for a muse. She was the well known daughter and frequent subject for her mother, Sally Mann, who felt compelled to explore the creative possibilities of self-fictionalization, or, as she says, 'making art by being in art'. The pair embarked on a partnership which is about the act of collaboration, carefully creating memorable images that combine theatrics, performance, and ideas."
    • Catherine Edelman Gallery, 300 W. Superior

  • Cheri Reif Naselli: Conceptual Installation
    • "Includes several encaustic paintings and wax-dipped drawings inspired by the bark of the lacewood or lagetta plant."
    • ARC Gallery, 734 N. Milwaukee Ave.
    • Through March 25

    • "Ken Grimes's art is characterized by his use of black and white acrylic on canvas and board. The stark quality of the white text or image on black background runs counter to the complex reality that his paintings seek to convey. That is, the simple images help explore the diverse registers of phenomenon in this universe that form a tantalizing web of connections and stratagems."
    • Intuit, 756 N. Milwaukee Ave.
    • Through May 2
