September 25–November 17: Delightful, Delicious, Disgusting: Mia Brownell. Paintings by contemporary artist Mia Brownell fuse the realism of 17th century Dutch still lifes with what she describes as “scientific models of proteins” and “American attitudes toward food as a commodity.” Brownell creates lushly realistic visions of her subjects while exploring what lies beneath their surfaces both microscopically and symbolically. Art critic Cate McQuaid describes Brownell’s work as “a postmodern fruit cocktail that marries today’s fascination with genetics and the building blocks of life with old-style painterly seduction.”
