The Front Room presents Patricia Smith: “City of One,” running May 9-June 1, with an artist’s reception May 9 from 7-9 p.m. The gallery is open Friday-Sunday, 1-6 p.m.

This new group of thematically related works on paper addresses the anxieties of contemporary life and the coping mechanisms that develop in the collective psyche. Making use of Rococo-like ornamentation characterized by lightness and delicacy, Smith creates fantastical structures that resemble both microorganisms and planetary surfaces.

These structures house imaginary organizations described through captions that label rooms and spaces. The words serve as clues to the meaning of these elaborate systems.

The Front Room is at 147 Roebling Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. For more, call 718-782-2556 or visit
