Hartford's Real Art Ways is the best spot around for cutting-edge art on the rise, and this month's no exception. Head to their Creative Cocktail Hour on Thursday to feast your eyes on two exhibits — Dennis Maher's House of the Unmaker (pictured) and Steve Lambert's Capitalism Works for Me! — that'll have you deeply engaged and thinking. Maher's work, which utilizes discarded building-site detritus in complex assemblages, hangs around the gallery until August. But Lambert's, a 20-foot-long, interactively rigged, lighted sign that allows you to vote "true" or "false," will promptly move on to a new locale. Who knows: maybe some of your fellow creative types — many of whom will no doubt be as opinionated about art as you are — will shed some light where there was only darkness.
Dennis Maher: House of the Unmaker
Steve Lambert: Capitalism works for me! True/False
both on view May 17, 6-10 p.m. as part of Creative Cocktail Hour, $5-$10, Real Art Ways, 56 Arbor St., Hartford, (860) 232-1006, realartways.org.
