And now he has, at the Singer Gallery, where Zalkind has created a curatorial niche, giving attention to artists who often fly below the radar. Paul Gillis: Curiouser A Dozen Years of Painting, which features an overview of Gillis works, opens tonight with a reception from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. It will inject a measure of humor, which is always good medicine, into the kinds of conversations were currently having, Zalkind says. In these cynical and browbeaten times, he adds, the art of Paul Gillis deserves a second look. And then a third, and a fourth.
Curiouser continues through May 28; the gallery is located in the Mizel Arts and Culture Center, Robert E. Loup Jewish Community Center, 350 South Dahlia Street. Go to www.maccjcc.org or call 303-316-6360 for details.
