Lyell Castonguay creates a signature world of imagined avian beings, whereas Liz Chalfin adroitly constructs her spaces by selectively eliminating or manipulating objects and surfaces. Jon Gregg's stylized and heavily impastoed figures float and march to an unknown pulse while Emily Mason surprises us with her lyrical sensitivity and characteristic, innovative use of a brilliant palette. Petria Mitchell leads us into a landscape defined by atmosphere, where night and day share a delicate balance. . Through Sunday, February 24. Free.
