There are many lessons to be learned from the offerings at Ron Judish Fine Arts and the Robischon Gallery. How thoughtful that with these shows, Judish and Robischon add not only to our visual edification but perhaps to our vocabularies as well. Surely some of us will be scrambling for dictionaries to find out that "verisimilitude" means to be "true or real," while "evanescence" refers to "transience." But it appears the artists, who take various approaches in conveying recognizable subjects, already understand the concepts.
