Brennan & Griffin
Since opening last year, Brennan & Griffin gallery has offered a tasty mix of West Coast and local artists across a variety of genres, from painting and photography to video installation and sound sculpture. This spring brings shows by Angeleno Kristin Calabrese (Apr 10–May 7), an artist-curator known for her oil-on-canvas renderings of homeless people and abject, abandoned interiors; and veteran '90s painter Mary Weatherford (May 15–June 19), whose work is a compelling if unlikely mix of New York School Abstraction, left-coast mysticism and seaside souvenir kitsch. 120 East Broadway between Pike and Rutgers Sts, sixth floor (212-227-0115, brennangriffin.com). Wed–Sun noon–6pm.
