For years, Sherry Markovitz made the most spectacular beaded sculptures: abstract, suggestive gourds or yams, doll heads, and sparkling hunting trophies. But in the last five years or so, she’s added a new strain to her work: portraits of dolls on loosely hanging cotton, each one a stainy, vivid, glowing freak flag that somehow also manages to be delicate and quietly mesmerizing. Markovitz is a Stranger Genius Award finalist this year. You need to see this show of her new works. (Greg Kucera Gallery, 212 Third Ave S, gregkucera.com, 10:30 am–5:30 pm, free, through June 29)
