The Breeder pre­sents artist Sofia Stevi’s first solo ex­hi­bi­tion with the Athens gallery, ti­tled “Lizzie & Laura.” For this new se­ries of paint­ings, the artist has drawn in­spi­ra­tion from Christina Ros­setti’s poem “Goblin Mar­ket,” which tells the story of a fraught en­counter between sis­ters Laura and Lizzie and evil goblin mer­chants, to raise themes of temp­ta­tion, sex­ual ex­change and sis­terly re­demp­tion. In­flu­enced by Ja­panese cal­lig­ra­phy, Stevi uses ink on un­treated fab­ric to pro­duce works filled with sym­bol­ism that trans­port the viewer to a dream world. Open Tues­days to Fri­days from noon to 8 p.m. and Satur­days from noon to 6 p.m. The Breeder, 45 Ia­sonos, tel 210.331.7527, www.the­breed­er­sys­tem.com
