1. Tony Scherman
At Winston Wächter through June 16
Scherman’s colossal paintings of Civil War–era characters zero in on their piercing, introspective eyes.
2. Bradley McCallum & Jacqueline Tarry
At Caren Golden through June 23
The conceptual duo (and biracial couple) are showing Richteresque paintings of civil-rights-era photographs, plus a new video in which the artists swap blood— an allusion to the “one-drop rule” of racial classification.
