Rochester artist Melissa Huang has been curating some swell exhibits of local artists at Haus Capital Corporation and Norchar — two eclectic real estate and mortgage business spaces side-by-side on Park Avenue. The current show, titled "Pearls Before Swine," features paintings and ceramics by a trio of artists who are cheekily critical of people and picture nature as triumphant. Through early August you can check out the decal-adorned vintage china and clay wares by Cat Clay, natural history-inspired paintings of wild beasts by Aaron Delehanty, and Stacey Rowe's barbed mixed media depictions of people and animals engaged in all sorts of mischief.
"Pearls Before Swine" is on view at Haus and Norchar, 383 and 389 Park Avenue, through August 3. A First Friday reception will be held on Friday, July 6, from 6 to 9 p.m., featuring a pop-up of a wider selection of works by Cat Clay. Regular hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free. 244-4444.
