Caught Looking

The Armory Center for the Art's main gallery space has a weird, closetlike corridor that's difficult to use, though curators seem determined to use it. Right now, one small painting by Mary Weatherford, just a purplish mound of color on a white canvas, hangs on the closet's back wall. It's spotlighted, which makes it feel precious in an endearing way. The show it's in, called "Caught Looking," features a handful of women who have taught at the Armory and also includes life-sized female figures by Ruby Neri. Sort of like skater girl takes on Giacometti, these women have lanky bodies, thick hair, and their hands behind their heads as if protecting themselves during an air raid. Because there's no attempt at perfection in Neri's treatment of her materials, or in any of the other artists', the show has an appealing unpretentiousness. 145 N. Raymond Ave., Pasadena; through June 8. (626) 792-5101,
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Feb. 15. Continues through June 8, 2014 (Expired: 06/08/14)
