In the galleries 

Chapel Hill's Steinway Gallery will be showing the work of Laura Dronzek during the gallery's Summer Show, a group exhibition of the gallery's artists beginning June 29. Dronzek's acrylic on paper paintings were brought to the attention at the Steinway Gallery's owners in 1997, when her work was featured in Contemporary Painting magazine. "I started painting wrestling, intertwined figures, and then it evolved into primeval animal figures," Dronzek says. The artist, who lives surrounded by the farms of rural Wisconsin, says that although she can see animals up close, she didn't want to paint them realistically, because that would seem "trite." "I wanted to abstract the animals and make them more ambiguous," she says (see "Untitled #65," pictured). Her work can be viewed at the Steinway Gallery through Sept. 6. Call 942-8780 for details.

DiamondDiamondDiamondSizl Gallery, which has relocated from its Chapel Hill location to a new red building on East Main Street in Carrboro, will have its grand opening celebration June 30 and July 1 from 11 a.m.-6 p.m., with live music on Saturday after 6 p.m. The inaugural show will feature handcrafted metal furniture, sculpture by local artists John Amero, Callie Warner and Brian Plaster, and new photography work by Stevens Clark. Sizl will also be showing the colorful, abstract paintings of Raleigh's Anna Podris. With their new space, Sizl has expanded to three times the size of their old gallery, and owner Karen Shelton says she'll be featuring more work by new artists and will put on regular musical events and dance performances. Call 960-0098 for details.
