Another Life: Pulling canvases apart in an act of meditative deconstruction, Elise Findlay reflects on the way small, everyday objects — in this case the woodworking tools she recreates — can lead to burnout. Surprisingly soft to the touch, they’re like textile ghosts of the craft and trade objects they represent, making a powerful statement with this fragile metamorphosis. The artist will be present for a reception Feb. 17 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday.

The Dark Eighties: If you’re in the mood to pour a little juicy darkness into your soul, DJ CVLT Nation (U.S./Vancouver) will be spinning into the night for the Dark Eighties Goth Valentine’s Day. You’ll hear cult ’80s hits, post punk, synth pop, goth dark wave and even some new stuff. Big hair, eyeliner, black clothes, big boots and/or Bowie style is encouraged, but not mandatory — dress how you feel best and roll with the arms-out skeleton-bones dancing in the Temple of Love!
