MONDAY, OCTOBER 3

IVELISSE JIMÉNEZ

Ivelisse Jiménez explodes the lineaments of abstract painting into three-dimensional space. In her installations, bright swipes and patterns of paint on the walls are augmented with hovering, tensile compositions of plastic, wire, and thread. Jiménez, a graduate of the University of Puerto Rico and New York University who has shown in galleries around the world, adds a short but carefully worked length of Z axis to most abstractionists' X and Y, resulting in pieces that change not only depending on the viewer but on where the viewer physically stands. The artist leads a workshop from two to five p.m. before this opening reception from six to eight, after which the exhibit is on view through Oct. 28. —Brian Howe
