Teenagers look critically at the grownup world, perhaps
because they know they'll be there themselves before long, and they
often don't like what they see. The School for Creative and Performing
Arts students who put together We Put the F.U.N. in Funeral certainly fall into that number, and interpret their title in the most ironic sense.
We’ve been here before, but it wasn’t quite the same. The frequently sun-struck paintings in the engaging exhibition, Continuity and Change: The Return to Figurative Painting,

Handsomely composed, deeply moving,
timeless or inextricably of their time and place; Gordon Baer’s
photographs, now on view at the Kennedy Heights Arts Center in a
career-spanning exhibition, are all of the above.
