Shannon Cannings and Corey Pickett critically approach a sadly perpetual topic of conversation in this country, the role of guns in society, in this two-person exhibit at Anya Tish Gallery. Cannings takes a look at the use of toy guns to normalize gun culture in her oil paintings, juxtaposing the colorful imagery used to advertise the toys with their violence, while Pickett utilizes upholstered sculptures stuffed with foam, informed by his research on the Middle Passage and Victorian and Dutch textiles, to create a place where the viewer can consider gun violence. The artists’ reception is Friday, but there’s also an artists’ Q&A and walkthrough on Saturday at 1 p.m. “FREEZE!” will be on view through November 11.
