Typically, we'll hear about a woman on an inner voyage to discover her identity in a new land and file it somewhere on the scale between tired feminism and an indulgent cliche. But the Valley House Gallery insists that it's art--and inspiring, opportunistic art at that. Israeli-born artist Hadar Sobol's new exhibition at the Valley House Gallery, Kaios, derives its title from the Greek word that, according to Wikipedia, means "the right or opportune moment." It's a collection of pieces in muted, earthy tones that use thread and drawing to communicate her personal voyage. And her pain--artists are usually in a lot of pain, and Sobol's is particularly lovely. Kaios is on display from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays until October 2 at the gallery, 6616 Spring Valley Road. Visit valleyhouse.com.
Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Sept. 18. Continues through Oct. 2, 2010
