Though beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, Michigan’s dismal winter pallet is an acquired taste and we are sort of totally over it.

To offer some eye-candy, David Klein Gallery’s Fractured Beauty features three multidisciplinary artists, all of whom explore color, perspective, and form through their respective mediums. Alisa Henriquez uses collage and distortion as a means to explore femininity and Detroit-based Andrew Krieger uses wood and clay to create three-dimensional panels to reflect the many sides of beauty. Rounding out the showcase is Los Angeles sculptor Brad Howe, who mixes nature and bold color to explain his multi-perspective narrative. Fractured Beauty will be on display until March 23.

'Fractured Beauty' opening reception begins at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16 at the David Klein Gallery and will run until March 23; 1520 Washington Blvd., Detroit; 313-818-3416; dkgallery.com; Event is free.
