Perhaps the most inane colloquialism these days is the mopey, just-give-up phraseology of "It is what it is." It is? What? It is. Oh my, how thought-provoking. So we hope that the Thornwood Gallery's Paint Is Paint exhibit goes a little deeper in content than in title. Then again, it is a "modern abstract expressionist" exhibit, so maybe that's the point. It's like reverse psychology, but with Pollockian influences or, like, Lacanian themes or crostini, or maybe it's just paint. Which is paint. Paint is paint, after all. Whoa. Wanna smoke something illegal and ponder that for a while? The free exhibit is at Thornwood Gallery, 1605 Dragon St., through February 9. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. Visit thornwoodgallery.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Jan. 9. Continues through Feb. 9, 2010
