Here are the art galleries and exhibits to see in Savannah this week.

Betsy Cain, the nature of not knowing: January 7-March 19, reception 6 pm-9pm January 14; Laney Contemporary Fine Art, 1810 Mills B Lane Blvd .; 912-438-4442, [email protected],

Personal exhibition by Savannah artist Betsy Cain. A new way to explore new forms and ideas, a mapping of possibilities. Cain’s lines are responsive and his processes move smoothly from medium to medium, the gallery says. His calligraphic linework similar to a dance in the image plane is a spatial recording of movement. The two and three-dimensional works intertwine and inform each other in this vast innovative selection, an aggregate of concentrated responses to solitary time, to reflection, to the subtlety of colors and to the way in which all these elements are anchored in the nature and experience.

Fun expedition by Bryson Thurston: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day until January 11; The Sensitive Bean, 13 E. Park Ave.

The solo exhibition blurs the lines of adventure and misadventure through a playful series of mixed media paintings, created in 2021; inspired by time spent on Tybee Island and Savannah in late spring. The cowboys, explorers, and characters found in his paintings are reminiscent of a child’s adventure fantasies and seem to have a story of their own. Bryson chooses to leave plenty of room for the imagination: the series invites the viewer’s inner child to play, rekindling a sense of joy and curiosity we all once knew.
