Nine

Through Mar. 6 9 RNG Gallery, 1915 Leavenworth St. (Dixie Quick’s entrance) Reception Feb. 12, 7-10 p.m., Gallery hours: Tue.-Fri. 11 a.m.-2p.m. and 5 p.m.-9p.m.; Sat.-Sun. 9 a.m.-2p.m., FREE, dixiequicks.com, 346.3549 In 9, a rag doll awakens in the post-apocalyptic future and holds the key to humanity’s salvation. OK, no, that’s the 2009 film produced by Tim Burton. Does RNG’s 9 hold such a key? Take a look at the varied work of the artists exhibiting: tattoo illustrator Jeff Carnal, painter/ceramicist Valerie Eich, figurative/abstract painter Mario Gallegos, haunting-fantastical drawer William Holland, photographer Vivian Kvam, abstract painter Shawnequa Linder, figurative drawer Tafadzwa Ndoda and newcomer exhibiting artists Fredy Rincon and Donald Thayer. Though maybe they shouldn’t be so-pigeonholed; the seemingly juxtaposition group show, curated by artist Mike Giron, is united by the “diversity of the mediums, styles and thought processes,” wrote RNG Owner Rob Gilmer on the gallery’s website. “Nine people, nine talents, nine expressions unveiled. Come and celebrate their art.” Perhaps this is the key?
