Running through December 18th is an excellent show at Columbia's Center for Book & Paper Arts, featuring work from Chicagoans Jay Ryan, of Dianogah fame, as well as Archer Prewitt, of local favorites The Sea and Cake. There is a massive amount of work on display here, showcasing Prewitt's Sof'Boy creation as well as a comprehensive selection of Ryan's work as The Bird Machine. If this doesn't manage to satiate your desire for local art, head on over to Foundation Gallery for their new exhibit, Drawing to an End. A theme of time permeates this fantastic group show, highlighting work from gallery staples Jay Ryan, Nick Butcher, Dan Grzeca, Justin Fines, and Seripop.
