Currently on view at Woodward Gallery on Manhattan’s Lower East Side is “The Eyes Have It,” a delightful exhibition showcasing several contemporary artists’ interpretations of eyes, as distinct elements of larger images.

Brooklyn-based Moody Mutz, “Berries and Grapes,” 2015, Acrylic on canvas

Hudson Valley-based Cosbe, “My Madonna Dot Com,” 2020, Mixed media on canvas
