1/17 to 2/20 — Temporal Patterns 

Integrating transience with relative stability, Juliane Shibata’s large-scale art installation celebrates both the defined lifespan of flowers and plants with the persistence of fired clay. It represents four seasons, and is inspired by the feminist Pattern and Decoration movement of the 70s and 80s. Reception, Thurs., 1/17, 6-8pm. Christensen Gallery, Augsburg College, 2211 Riverside Ave, Mpls. Details: julianeshibata.com, augsburg.edu/galleries

Ames Center Black Box, Burnsville. $32 and up. Details: ames-center.com
