Using photographs, poetry and film, artists de’Angelo Dia and Shaun El C. Leonardo have created an exhibit based around a former boxer whose career has gone from glory to gloom. In the exhibit, we see the boxer in an abandoned gym with punching bags and debris on the floor around him. This former “macho” man sits with no punches to be thrown, as the exhibit makes a statement about the kickback associated with pain. (Anita Overcash) Free admission

The New York-based artist is proud of her native country of Puerto Rico and her former home in Florida. That’s clear when viewing nature and animals that emerge in her work. Her paintings, often resembling tapestries, are filled with symbols and hidden meanings. They have a curious feel that’s worth the “time and silence.” (Also, the exhibit’s title comes from a song by singer Cesária Évora.) (Anita Overcash)
Cristina Toro makes intuitive paintings that explore our relationship to nature, inner worlds, and unknowable things. Opening night (Nov. 6) you must RSVP free of charge. Freehttp://lacaprojects.com
