How much does admiration from fans influence an artist's work? In the case of "Admire," Form + Content's latest exhibition, quite a lot. For this group show, gallery members invited 11 artists whose work they adore — including Pritika Chowdhry, Julie Christensen, Hannah Frick, Wing Young Huie, and John Vogt — to participate in an interesting project. Each artist was sent a letter espousing the virtues and strengths of their work. This feedback was then used as inspiration to either create entirely new pieces or to revisit old works and themes. Featured pieces will be on display side-by-side with key flattery from the original notes. Will it impact your interpretation as well? There will be an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, January 19. (Amanda Hamilton, Beautiful Terrible)
