Goodwin Fine Art
is coming out strong with a pair of heavy-duty solos. A few blocks away, Walker Fine Art
is also starting strong, with Experimental Surroundings
, a group effort to which gallery owner Bobbi Walker has devoted the entire space. The show includes pieces by a half-dozen artists — painters, sculptures and installation artists — who’ve all created distinctive pieces that somehow go together. One reason for this success is that the organizing theme is fairly broad, essentially just abstraction with some source in nature; another is that each of the artists is shown in depth, in a dedicated space, allowing viewers to move from one artist’s section to the next.
