Jan. 30-Feb. 16: Figures and Vistas
It’s not too late to see Figures and Vistas, an exhibit featuring work by local artists Gordon Binder and Joyce McCarten. The collection is on view at Gallery Plan b in Northwest through February 16 and features a combination of paintings and drawings. Binder focuses on urban themes in his oil paintings and pen and ink drawings as he explores architecture and dense city centers. Conversely, McCarten chooses to highlight more pastoral scenery with charcoal drawings and colorful landscapes.
