Around Gilliam, there’s restraint, equanimity and balance. There is the blackness of both Rico Gatson’s and Dan Steinhilber’s sculptural abstractions, works that are intensified by Jane Kent’s overlapping musical scores, further blurred by Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson painting upon silk threads and made distinctive by Meg Lipke’s beeswax with India-inked and fabric dyed drawings. -thru Aug 24
