Blakely Bering and Austin James have taken "Energy," a collection of their new works, to BNIM, an architectural firm. "It's new works, mixed media on panels, all very vibrant and incredibly energetic, hence the name," says Cali Alvarado, gallery director for Bering & James Gallery. "The work is a lot more metallic than what you've seen from them lately." So why did they show the exhibit at BNIM, a nontraditional exhibit space, instead of their own gallery? "They had a bunch of blank walls," laughs Alvarado. "We like to go outside the expected every once in a while. And BNIM is very gallery-esque, just one big room with a few desks in the middle." 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Through August 28. 4916 Main.
