Lost & Found
For Lost and Found, the artists of Savage Gallery were asked to pick one piece of art by any other artist. These "finds" make up the exhibit, resulting in some excellent pieces with tendencies toward geometric splotches of color and a trickled-down influence of Richard Tuttle-but the show was too enjoyable to generalize so broadly.
