Carl Annala
Gruesome magnifications of normal objects are oil painter Annala's specialty. Everything from human mouths to architectural structures get the treatment. The results are weirdly sexual. Lovelake, 1720 NW Lovejoy #107, 503 939 2255, Nov 7-22

Carl Morris
Carl Morris' abstract paintings look like miniature storms. Large, hulking patches of color crash into each other, creating an effect that is both luminous and haunting. Laura Russo Gallery, 805 NW 21st Ave, 226-2754, Nov 7-30

Animal Vegetable Carnival
The latest installation from Iggy Green is a send-up to circuses, state fairs, and rural family life. Her flamboyant sculptures use taxidermy eyes, fur, and feathers to accentuate half-clown, half-pet hybrids. Froelick Gallery, 817 SW 2nd Ave, 222-1142, Nov 5-30

Scale & Illusion
The paintings of Arless Day are packed with vibrant detail. He uses for his subjects everything from rooms filled with collectibles to seascapes, then renders them with exquisite detail. Every nook, cranny, and object practically falls out of the canvas at you. Augen Gallery, 817 SW 2nd Ave, 224-8182, Nov 7-30

The Mad Day: Summer of '68
The Beatles. Love 'em or hate 'em, you gotta love pictures of 'em 'cuz they're kinda funny looking, 'cept for George, who was pretty handsome. On one fateful summer day in 1968, photographer Tom Murray took a bunch of pictures of them. Here they are. Photographic Image, 240 SW 1st Ave, 224-3543, Nov 7-Dec 29

Mark Bornowski & Margarita Leon
Bornowski mixes media to create pieces with names like "How Many T-Birds with a Continental Kit Does It Take to Make a Parking Lot?" Leon deals with loss and isolation through the firing of clay, glass, wood, and various metals. L & B Gallery, 1215 SW 16th, 241-4144, Through Nov 29

Trish Grantham
Local mixed media painter Grantham has been ubiquitous recently. It's easy to see why; her slightly blocky humans, birds, and miscellaneous creatures are somehow both cute and disturbing. Reading Frenzy, 921 SW Oak, 274-1449, Opening Nov 7
