Photographer Areca Roe releases a new book of “non-traditional” pet photography tonight at Soo Vac. The beautifully blocked work captures the unique relationships between owners and their snakes, hedgehogs, pot-bellied pigs, and ferrets, as well as illustrates the contrast of an otherwise wild animal in soft, domestic surroundings and everyday clutter. Great stuff. 5:30-7:30 PM. Free. —Tracy Oxford
