"Saccade"

July 3-15

When artists critique each other's work, they talk about the way something in the composition "moves the eye around" in a certain way. It's similar to what happens when we read—our eyes move across a page, while our brains recognize, record, and interpret the symbols printed there. Turns out, "saccade" is the term for this particular eye movement, and it's fitting that Baltimore artist Hermonie, Only uses it as the title for her solo exhibition. In her sculpture work, Only plays with variations on shape, form, light, and design in minimal, but engaging, ways. She often arranges her compositions into neat piles and casually disorganized patterns of spare, abstracted objects, causing our eyes to move up and over and down and around as we look at them—even if we're not totally sure what we're looking at yet. Opening reception July 3, 7-10 p.m., Terrault Contemporary, 1515 Guilford Ave., terraultcontemporary.com, free. (Rebekah Kirkman)
