First Friday

[ART] A lighter, holiday-themed docket this turn of the calendar with only a few openings as other many spaces are holding ongoing sales of arts and locally produced gifts, but there’s two good ones on Friday night to check out. We’ve been capitvated by the calligraphy-based art of Muhammad Z. Zaman in the past, we’d be excited to check out his solo show at Argus Gallery (1896 Niagara Street, 6-9pm). And while we’re already on Niagara Street, we wouldn’t miss a chance to stop in at Anna Kaplan Contemporary about a mile away (1250 Niagara Street, 6-9pm) where Gary Sczerbaniewicz and Sheila Barcik open a dual show. An illustrator and creator of full-scale installations who has used subjects of buildings and architcture prominently in the past, Sczerbaniewicz will be exhibiting smaller, perhaps even wall-hung sculptures of similar subjects, house cuts that introduce “a sense of psychological unease.” Barcik’s works on paper, meanwhile, will feature Red Chutes, a work comprised of 98 smaller drawings fit togther as a whole. Elsewhere in town, don’t forget to support many other galleries opening house to sell works and items, including Pine Apple Company (65 Allen Street), Artists Group Gallery (5 Linwood Avenue), Parables Gallery (1027 Elmwood Avenue), and Starlight Studio (340 Delaware Avenue) to name a few.
