Bling Boutique

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday January 23
Mark Woolley Gallery @ Pioneer
700 SW 5th Ave., 3rd floor, Pioneer Place Mall
 
With a title like Bling Boutique, Mark Woolley Gallery’s 20th anniversary show was bound to be an exercise in glitz, and that’s just what it turned out to be. Some of the sparkliest works in this sprawling group show come courtesy of Wesley Younie. His sculpture of a miniature black volcano appears to be coated in glittery flecks of mica mixed with obsidian. Less majestic and more whimsical is his painting of a droll frog, sitting implacably on a background of shimmering gold leaf. It walks a delicate line between whimsy and opulence, irony and post-irony. Through Jan. 25.
