Oct. 14-Jan. 26, 2013: Van Gogh Repetitions

People often imagine Vincent Van Gogh wildly moving his brush across a canvas, hastily creating his work. But the 19th century artist could also be methodical and controlled. Now through January 26 you can see Van Gogh Repetitions at The Phillips Collection. The first exhibit to focus on Van Gogh's practice of creating more than one version of a particular subject, the collection includes more than 30 paintings and works on paper that take a fresh look at his artistic process.

Oct. 14-Nov. 30: Surreal Universes — From the Psychedelic to the Sublime

A new exhibit by local artist David Hubbard opens today at Modern Times Coffeehouse at Politics & Prose in Northwest, where it will be on view through November 30. In Surreal Universes — From the Psychedelic to the Sublime, Hubbard works on canvas and heavy print paper, using stencils to create his colorful patterns influenced by nature, geometry and the funky, visual aspects of the psychedelic movement.
