Page 3 of 3

EvB Studio Mini-Shops: Clay Birds EvB Studio 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 2 Noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 3

Hands-on activity is another aspect of gallery-going on First Friday, especially at EvB Studio at 44th Avenue and Tennyson Street, where clay artist Marie Gibbons leads her monthly drop-in mini-shops. For May, her guests will be making clay birds in an ode to spring; Gibbons provides tools and materials, and fires and black-washes each piece for pickup at a later date, all for a $10 fee. Can't make it tonight? There's an encore tomorrow afternoon.

J. Diane Martonis: Justamere Sandy and Terry Lane and David Reed: The Butterfly Effect Ice Cube Gallery May 1 through May 24 Opening reception: 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 2

Ice Cube's spacious rooms fill up tonight with two shows. Diane Mortonis's delicate pastiche of shadows and cut paper recalls summers at her family's summer cottage in western New York State, while a joint multimedia installation by Sandy and Terry Lane, with David Reed, injects a shot of science into a study of genetic disorders.
