You only have a few days left to see a good show of Robert Thiele's work at Barbara Gillman. Photographs of his works do almost nothing to convey them - he builds boxes with colored surfaces inside, and covers them with semi-transparent scrim. They function like neutral, minimalist paintings, but the few inches of depth give the areas of color a hazy, mysterious atmosphere. If you need a dose of serious art-making, get over there by the 31st.
