The Urban Dictionary defines "tweens" as girls ages 9-14, "too old for toys, too young for boys." OHWOW gallery's current show takes that phrase -- Too Old for Toys, Too Young for Boys>/i> -- as its title. The work isn't really about tweens, and it doesn't look like it was made by tweens. But it riffs on a visual sensibility that wouldn't exist if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen didn't have a girls clothing line, or if Kotex hadn't started putting tampons in glittery packages. Artist Debo Eilers' plastic-encased floor piece, a squashed container of orange and pink fabrics with cheaply made girls' belts along its edges, feels brand new and store-bought. Donald Moffett's cadmium-red painting is plush and dense like a bedside rug. 937 N. La Cienega Blvd., W. Hlywd.; through Sept. 1. (305) 571-9494, oh-wow.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 30. Continues through Sept. 1, 2012
