Art

"Monsteras" at Wally Workman Gallery. Local figurative painter Patrick Puckett opens his sixth solo show at Wally Workman. The show's title, "Monsteras," refers to the foliage depicted, but that's not all: Puckett’s larger-than-life canvases deploy the color red to lend his singular figures an undeniable presence. The powerful images are further strengthened by his confident use of paint application, shape, color and texture. (Monstera, by the way, is a tropical flowering plant.) 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. Sunday through June 23. 1202 W. Sixth St. wallyworkmangallery.com
