The first work you see when you enter David Kordansky’s new mid-city gallery are Jonas Woods’ 9 to 11 foot tall paintings of single plants in painted pots against white backgrounds. But if these seem static and unnecessarily large, you’ll get a quirkier more down-to-earth experience as soon as you turn the corner and wander through next two galleries. In them, you’ll see heat-of-the-moment ink drawings, like the one of Shaquille O’Neil, and paintings like the slightly off-kilter one of ceramicist Akio Takamori working in a full studio on a pot that’s also a self-portrait.

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Nov. 13. Continues through Jan. 10, 2014
