Opening this Friday at the Weston Gallery in downtown’s Aronoff Center for the Arts are three solo projects: Alice Pixley Young’s Nightfall, Steve Zieverink’s Live Station, and paintings and wall drawings by Rick Mallette. While Young’s installations deal with nostalgia and memory, Zieverink’s creative process takes into account our ever-progressing technologies and how these new frontiers affect not just aesthetics but biology, personal identity and other basic building blocks of the human experience.

Of the three shows, my anticipation is most piqued by Alice Pixley Young's. She ingeniously created a blog (www.alicepixley.blogspot.com) so that we might follow her preparations and experiments for her installations, and it even includes work on pieces that won’t appear at the Weston. Such honesty and humility are found in her final installations as well, which combine vintage objects, dyed paper, laser-cut felt and cut-out metal silhouettes to make up something complex.

The opening reception is 6-9 p.m. Friday. Regular gallery hours are 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays and noon-5 p.m. Sundays. The exhibitions continue through February 28.
