Dan Iris Gottlieb

When: Sat., May 20, 5 p.m. 2017

They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. This pair of exhibits by a father and daughter is concerned with ensuring that future generations have enough natural world left to recognize the meaning of the cliché. Dan Gottlieb—the NCMA director of planning and design who helmed the Museum Park renovation—combines photography and painting in American Landscapes in 4/3 Time, referring both to his camera and to a jazzy time signature he perceives in nature's improvisations, which he renders as cunning abstractions of light and shape. Meanwhile, upstairs, the Oakland-based illustrator Iris Gottlieb shows work related to her new book, Natural Attraction, which explores the relationships between animals and people through quirky watercolors and text. Iris's exhibit is supplemented by Personal Work, in which she probes "having mental illnesses, my queerness, and ways to visually explore intimate and vulnerable experiences." After this opening reception, the exhibit runs through July 1. —Brian Howe
