Tracey Harris

Wally Workman Gallery

Last Chance - September 6 through 27, 2014

Darkly comic paintings of domestic settings and scantily clad babes in aprons. Hard to say from a jpeg whether Tracey Harris can paint, but her imagery is pretty funny.

LOVE George Herms

Testsite

Miller, Kymia Nawabi, Christopher Pate, Max Presniell, Colette Robbins, Maja Ruznic, Tom Sanford, Alfred Steiner, Michael Shaw, and Dani Tull.

Do Ho Suh
