Gildar Gallery

August 22 through September 26

Opening reception: 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, August 22

Gildar Gallery brings back artist Ryan Everson, who's built sculptural wood-and-metal works of signage and photographed them in natural landscapes, setting iconic stands of text among trees on mountaintops or drifting slowly across a lake in a canoe.

Louis Recchia

Louis Recchia: Solo Show

Zip 37

August 22 through September 7

Opening reception: 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, August 22

Longtime co-op artist Louis Recchia hangs another solo at Zip 37, featuring new work in his instantly recognizable pop-expressionist style. Artists like Recchia seem to inspire fledgling art collectors to get in the game, as he did for Westword scribe Bree Davies and events maven/art scenester Dana Cain; maybe you'll take a shine to something of his as well, and start a collection of your own. Zip is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only; see Recchia's work through September 7.
