Los Angeles, CA 
Robbie Conal has been doing his best to keep the bastards honest for the last several decades, thanks in part to a committed army of wheat-paste posterers, and along the way he's become one of the most beloved street artists in Los Angeles history. All of this is based on a rigorous studio painting practice, wherein his special knack is to combine a signature style of deeply scored, visceral portraiture with incisive, satirical political puns that sum up the problems at hand precisely and perfectly. Needless to say, he's had a lot to work with in the past few years. Tailor-made for this especially topsy-turvy political climate and in the runup to the midterms (Vote!), Conal returns to Track 16 Gallery with "Cabinet of Horrors," a new series of original paintings that take direct aim at the rogue's gallery currently in charge of our government. Note: It's a big night at the Bendix Building where, alongside Track 16, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Monte Vista Projects, 515 and Durden & Ray all open new exhibitions. Track 16, Bendix Building, 1206 Maple Ave., downtown; opening reception: Sat., Oct. 13, 7-10 p.m.; exhibit: Wed.-Sat., noon-6 p.m., thru Dec. 8; free. (310) 815-8080, track16.com. —Shana Nys Dambrot <
