Heather Brown at Carter and Citizen & Scott Olson at Overduin and Kite Preamble: It has been true for years, I am way over spectacle. Maybe you’re like me. I thought a lot of people felt this way but clearly not enough do because 2012 still looks a lot like 2007. Celebrity continues to be watered down. Like warm piss in the toilet bowl, it holds charm no more. The otherwise charming word Franco has come to signal the knee-buckling weakness formerly serious institutions have acquired for dull gl...

“Grasping for Relics,” at ZieherSmith Gallery, is a group show of eleven artists and thirty-six works that, at surface level, have very few similarities.

      In his small abstract paintings Ohio-based artist Scott Olson seems to evoke European movements and traditions from art history.
