ART | "A Little Death: A Solo Exhibition" 

What happens when Death's son is a little nicer than Death himself, and has a hard time continuing the work of his father? Local artist Nicholas Gurewitch has the answer in his newest project, an art book called "Notes on a Case of Melancholia, or: A Little Death." Gurewitch illustrated the entire, self-described "mostly silent picture book," with dark, gothic scratchboard artwork that fits the tone and theme of the story. The narration comes from the case notes of Dr. Edgar O. Wye, a psychoanalyst who accepts Death as his patient. Through the end of the month, Main Street Arts is featuring original pages and select prints from the book in its current, second floor exhibit, "A Little Death: A Solo Exhibition."

Main Street Arts (20 West Main Street in Clifton Springs) is open Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The exhibit continues through June 30, with an artist meet and greet on Thursday, June 29, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, call 315-462-0210 or visit mainstreetartsgallery.com.
