“End of the Night Cafe,” the show put together by Charles Mayton and Lucas Knipscher at Thomas Duncan Gallery, is meant to resemble an overstuffed bar. A makeshift counter angles out into the main room, a roughly painted menu board and liquor shelf hanging behind it. There's neon signage in the window and, hanging all around, garish paintings, kitschy paintings and paintings of people drinking, made by Mayton, Knipscher and other artists they enlisted. Pat Palermo's loose acrylic and oil renderings of actors, such as Kirk Douglas and Tim Roth, moodily portraying tragic artist Vincent Van Gogh are the highlight. 6109 Melrose Ave.; through June 7. (310) 494-1177, thomasduncangallery.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 25. Continues through June 7, 2014
