The GoggleWorks Center for the Arts is at 201 Washington St. Call 610-374-4600, or visit www.goggleworks.org for details.
Viewing through April 23 at the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts Cohen Gallery are two separate exhibitions that deal with issues of painting in one, and formalist sculpture in the other. Both are well conceived and displayed, complementing the other more in terms of counterbalanced opposition than aesthetic conflict.
Regarding the Cohen Gallery West show titled "Come On In," the paintings of Erika Stearly and Ekaterina Popova seem to have latched onto a similar idea by mixing the physical properties of paint with images of domestic environments, such as sloppy house interiors or chores that need doing. Both artists work from photographs of their own homes or those of friends.
