Paintings on copper in Tuscan Elements. Lisa Harris Gallery, 1922 Pike Place, 443-3315. Through June 26.

* RICHARD MARQUIS, ERIC WOHL

In many ways, Marquis is the most interesting of the area's glass artists, taking what seems to be a good deal of pleasure in the medium's latent junkiness (which is, of course, the flip side of fetishy preciousness). Here, Marquis shows found objects, which he displays reverently, alongside his own glass objects--often broken, misshapen, not quite right (whatever that is). With Eric Wohl's glass environment for glass chickens, some stuffed with dirt and feathers. Priceless Works Gallery, 619 N 35th St, Suite 100, 349-9943. Through June 28.
