MARCH 3 TO JUNE 5 The commingling of painting, sculpture and ceramic art finds expressive purchase in Places, Spaces and Things, the latest exhibition at the Gardiner Museum. A survey of recent works by prolific American artist Betty Woodman, the display highlights its subject’s extravagant use of colour and eccentric shapes in 50 porcelain vessels that hearken to Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. A number of her grandiose canvas and ceramic installations make clear Woodman’s painterly panache even more explicitly.
