An Experience in Depth
Put this in your pipe and smoke it: a brand new 3-D center just opened up with all kinds of trippy images, eye-popping stereographs, and supercool 3-D glasses. 3D Center of Art & Photography, 1928 NW Lovejoy, Fri-Sun 1-5 pm

Pilgrims, Strangers, Imaginary Friends
San Diego artist Samantha Magowen rocks Gallery 500 this month with a mixed media exhibition that delves into the relationships between pattern and decoration, fiction, and memory. Gallery 500, 420 SW Washington, Suite 500

* The Puppet Festival
Everybody likes a good puppet, but they really love a dirty rotten puppet, which is what Orlo promises to serve up this month. Saturday night, local puppeteers are staging an open mic night that would undoubtedly make Sheri Lewis start praying for the soul of Lambchop. An array of puppets will be on view all month, with additional performances on April 17 and May 1. Orlo Exhibition Space, 2516 NW 29th, Bldg 9, 242-1047, April 3-May 15

Inaugural Exhibition
Those scrappy students at PSU have opened a new gallery in the student union to showcase their own work. Each month, at least two artists will show at Food For Thought, which will give you a good excuse to go act creepy in the student union while you're trying to pick up kids much younger than yourself. Food For Thought Student Gallery, Smith Memorial Student Union, PSU

Tony Evanko
Blocky color squares get revamped by Tony Evanko, who uses chromatic blocks as stand-ins for the alphabet and punctuation. You get a gold star if you guessed that he then "spells out" phrases with his color cubits. And if you predicted that he transcribes the titles of rock and roll songs this way, you are a very bright. Elizabeth Leach Gallery, 207 SW Pine St
