If you visit tonight’s exhibition opening, you won’t be seeing the entirety of the show. An unfinished project? Not quite, as the Bockley has planned an “evolving” group exhibit in “The River.” It will be a constantly changing show, allowing many different artists’ works to connect with each other and change in relationship to other works throughout the show’s run. The Bockley usually concentrates on one artist at a time, so this is a chance to break from their routinely featured group. The initial show will include a piece by Barbara Kreft, a Circa Gallery regular, as well as a work from the Gee’s Bend collective of quilters, who use old-fashioned materials and process to an uncannily modernist result. Put that next to incredibly dynamic colored pencil works by Joe Sinness (pictured above) and you have a group of works that speak to each other in unexpected ways. See the first iteration of the show tonight and meet some of the artists, then return to watch the exhibit grow and change over time. 6-9 p.m. Free. –EK
