Of the remaining pieces in the show, some are landscapes (large, naive works complete with gumdrop- and pumpkin-shaped trees that happily look like crayon), and the rest aren't. Some are well-drawn and charming (Ruby Osorio's Considering Eve, showing cartoon versions of thoroughly modern, everyday hipster chicks sitting on the can and doing their hair, surrounded by pieces of Snow White's apple), and some are a mess. It's a good show, with mostly strong—or at least interesting—work. But, oh, the show of taxidermied dead things it could have been.
