Museum Gallery/Gallery Museum’s next exhibition, Non-Zero Sum, features one of the collective’s own members, Reid Radcliffe, alongside Jeremy Flick, an artist who now lives in Maryland but studied at the University of Cincinnati. For several years, Flick has been working with the patterning found inside security envelopes, isolating these blue grids, plaids and checks to be seen in a lineage of pattern painting and other tropes in abstract painting’s history. Cool in temperament and smartly presented, these abstract paintings, drawings and other visual solutions are weighty with meaning from their source.

Once informed of the origin of these seemingly decorative patterns, they allude to interpersonal and social problems of privacy and trust. The exhibition’s opening reception is from 6-11 p.m. Friday; however, on Thursday night at 7 p.m., an artist talk/exhibition preview will allow viewers to “participate in the curatorial game,” as the press release describes.

The exhibition continues through Aug. 20. Museum Gallery is located at 1218 Sycamore St., Over-the-Rhine.
