We love a good art show where the name is a big chunk of the write-up. Anxiety About the Precise Significance of the Present and Uncertainty About the Future, a mixed-media group exhibition, examines everything from historical erasure and cultural trauma to personal safety, intimacy, and memory. The roster of twelve artists, curated by Kerri Mulcare and Stephanie Colgan, includes many notable names like Leslie Barlow and Maggie Thompson, whose work will be exciting to see at the opening reception at the cool Marsden/Gustafson Gallery at FilmNorth. Thursday, August 22nd, 5:30 PM. Free. —Tracy Oxford
