Apr. 16-May 31: Enduring & Alive and Present
You can head to CONNERSMITH, an art gallery in Northeast, through May 31 to see two solo exhibits. Enduring features new oil paintings by Katie Miller, who depicts children in bright colors and with accessories such as toys, beads, costumes and electronic gadgets. But, while the kids and their props are modern, the poses are reminiscent of portraits from the past. In Alive and Present, Dutch artist Agniet Snoep shows off a series of photographs inspired by the still life tradition in the Dutch Golden Age of painting.
