Opening this weekend at Gallery 400, Ghost Nature focuses on mankind’s desire to connect with the natural world. However, the artwork tends to be more bizarre than majestic. The pieces range from a bee trap that uses blue paint as bait, to documentation of a human-to-horse blood transfusion, questioning how healthy our love of nature is to begin with. (January 17–March 1; Tuesday–Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. Admission is free.)
