* LORI NIX
"Nix's scenes are photographed to seem more or less full-scale, and are populated with tiny model-railroad figures and houses and also with things that are artist-made, but part of their charm is that they're not particularly invested in fooling you. For all the intimations of doom, the images are insouciant, happily counterfeit, and this doesn't make them one bit less effective. They have the glancing impenetrable unreality of film stills; think Blue Velvet. " (Emily Hall) G. Gibson Gallery, 514 E Pike St, 587-4033. Through May 29.
