Robert Klein Gallery presents Cig Harvey - Eat Flowers. In this exhibit, the photography of Cig Harvey focuses almost completely on flowers.

The gallery is open Wednesday to Friday, 12  5 p.m. Robert Klein Gallery is located at 38 Newbury St., Boston, MA. For more information, please visit here.

The UMass Amherst Fine Arts Center presents New Generation Abstraction: LG Talbot. This exhibit features the abstract work of LG Talbot which takes on the genre of American abstract painting through large and bold paintings that "convey a distillation of lived experience," according to the artist in their statement. A reception and artist talk will be held on November 2 from 5 to 7 p.m. The gallery is open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 1 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday. The UMass Amherst Fine Arts Center is located at 130 Hicks Way, Amherst, MA.

Newport Art Museum presents Robert Stengel: Moments of Joy, which features the work of utsider artist Robert Stengel, whose work consists of found maps overlayed with colorful, hand painted dots. Stengel takes the precise lines used to create a map, which are meticulously measured and plotted out and juxtaposes them against messy, smudged circles to create a eye-catching mix of polar opposites. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. The Newport Art Museum is located at 76 Bellevue Avenue, Newport, RI. For more information, please visit here.
