Buffalo-based artist and photographer Zach Frank works in a variety of paint and drawing media, with subject matter ranging from photo-real portraiture, to colorful geometric studies, to surreal, meandering doodles. Especially interesting are his "Recess Paintings," in which he incorporates elements of playgrounds into vague environments, toying with perspective and spatial relationships.
Catch a dozen of his drawings, displayed at Tajze's Wine & R&B Lounge (139 State Street) through the end of March. An opening party for "Simple Communication" will be held on Saturday, March 5, from 6 to 10 p.m. There's a $5 cover that comes with complimentary champagne for the 8 p.m. toast. For regular hours and more information, call 423-0873 or visit facebook.com/TajzeLounge. To preview Frank's work, visit zachfrankart.wordpress.com.
