‘Maskenfreiheit’ By Kayla Bischoff

Masks are a modern, necessary accessory. But painter Kayla Bischoff has been using them in her art for years. Her current exhibition “Maskenfreiheit,” is German for “the freedom that comes from wearing a mask.” (Take that, political non-wearers.) Gallery co-owner Billy Hertz said the show has been planned since last year, “so the whole mask thing is purely coincidental … [It] has been a recurring theme that keeps evolving in her work.” The gallery is open by appointment only, in the afternoon on the hour. To reserve a time, email the gallery at [email protected] And, of course, masks are required.

Through Aug. 8
