Her Story

Found Footage Fest
Like prospectors panning for gold, The Onion's Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher from Late Show with David Letterman search thrift stores across the country to unearth uncanny, bizarre, and unintentionally brilliant VHS recordings left behind. This collection of found footage includes little gems lost to memory, like a Taco Ball-sponsored Desert Storm parade, a retrospective of on-air bloopers from local North Dakota TV, and Reagan-era panic bait over Satanic cults. Central Cinema, $15

Emily Gherard: It All Burns

The Seattle-based artist returns to Bridge Productions, this time with work from, and in response to, this past year of turmoil and uncertainty. Many of Gherard's new paintings look as though they've been charred by fire and weighted with fatigue. Others hide a glow of red, like embers still alive under cover of ash and soot. It's the sort of allegorical work that causes you to think back on everything that's happened since last November and say, "Me too." Bridge Productions, Free

Thru Jan 15 
Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect
Andrew Wyeth captured both the vastness and the ennui of the American landscape with a grace unrivaled in the twen- tieth century. Exemplified in his most famous work, Christina’s World, Wyeth’s paintings project something profoundly complex and personal in pastoral living; scenes fraught with emotional stakes despite their tranquil and seemingly idyllic simplicity. Seattle Art Museum, $24.95

Thru Apr 15
