Jan. 2-Feb. 2: Staples and Gravy
You can see an exhibit of new, earthy oil paintings by Edward Bear Miller at Foundry Gallery in Northwest through February 2. Staples and Gravy features realist depictions of local trees, fish species, and landmarks such as the Key Bridge and Long Railroad Bridge. There are also wilderness pieces that the artist painted while visiting Colorado and the Adirondacks.

Jan. 2-Feb. 9: Residue
Residue: The Work of Sharon Butler, Michael Callaghan, Steven Charles, J.D. Hastings and Toni Tiller opens today at Adah Rose Gallery, where it will be on view through February 9. The artists use tape as a basic tool for creating their work, but do not let the material steal the focus. There will be an opening reception Saturday night at 6:30 p.m. featuring music by Blackberry Blonde.
