The muse was a well-known component in the work of Picasso, Dali, and Kahlo. A new show at Rehs Contemporary Galleries shows how this tradition continues in the work of Linda Adair, David Bowers, Randalf Dilla, Amanda Greive, Hiroshi Furuyoshi, Ira Reines, and Michael Van Zeyl, even in unexpected ways. Bowers, for instance, cites his wife as integral to his work, while combining components of her with influences from historical masterworks. The show runs Oct. 27-Nov. 16.
