Adam Davies’ photographs show sparse, desolate public spaces like the columns of a bridge or a bend in the road in stark ways. In the new exhibit “Reroutings,” his architectural and landscape photographs will be displayed in a “monumental” size, 5-by-6 feet, and the gallery will have darkened walls and curtains for a more immersive experience. As an added bonus, Alex Zhang Hungtai, best known for the crooning lo-fi project Dirty Beaches, will perform electronic music in response to the pictures. And it’s all free.

Gallery opening reception starts at 6 p.m., Alex Zhang Hungtai performance at 7:30 p.m., Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave., (410) 276-1651, creativealliance.org, free.

Peter Stern’s photographs look at once familiar and indistinguishable. There are large splotches of earth tones and snaking lines in his compositions, and upon close inspection, you’ll see the image is actually a coal mine or an Eastern Shore landscape.

catch of the day fish (2)Film and fashion have always gone hand in hand. Classic cinema particularly has always set our standard for glamor and class. In the original Oceans 11, the Rat Pack star as World War II compatriots who pull off the ultimate Las Vegas heist. If that’s not a place to draw your style inspiration from, what is? This Thursday, the Creative Alliance invites you to  suit and get your swagger on. See the film, dress the part, and enjoy an evening of inspired style.
