1. David Godbold
At Mitchell-Innes & Nash through May 25
Mini ink drawings of religious scenes are overlaid onto found scraps of paper, like shopping lists and love letters, creating ironic twists punctuated with added text.
2. Guy Richards Smit
At Roebling Hall through April 28
Smit puts brush to newspaper illuminating political headlines and stories in the New York Times with his own sarcastic musings: Watercolors rarely have such bite.
3. Paul Thek
At Alexander and Bonin through May 12
Similarly using the New York Times as canvas, Thek allows text to peek through his thick, vibrant abstractions.
