Take notice of the title of this latest exhibition at garner narrative. It’s telling the truth; viewers will be entering new, surrealist worlds from the artists’ minds. Andrew Abbott is well known for this. “I don’t live between two worlds because worlds aren’t like sheets,” said Abbott. “I live in world soup.” Translation: He’s a man of the world, having lived in Nova Scotia, Canada and Puerto Rico and now in Brooklyn. He takes that global knowledge and paints his new worlds. Lexington’s Suann Childers’ new world has a name: “Clown Island.” With that title, is there a surprise it’s partially based on New York City? Their opening reception is during the June 1 Republic Bank First Friday Hop from 6-9 p.m.
