“Experiences in the 22nd Dimension”
Sky High Gallery
2501 S. Howell Ave.
New Orleans-based artists Corinne Loperfido and Andrew Schrock team up to create a stimulating multi-media installation at Sky High Gallery. Employing the premise that two androgynous deities have come to Earth to create a temple of benevolent instruction for humanity, the artists challenge alienating and isolationist social practices and work to create a deeper connection between body and mind. The show opens Friday, Aug. 2, 7-11 p.m. and runs through Aug. 31.

Racine Art Museum
441 Main St., Racine
Installed on RAM’s fifth-floor windows, Martha Glowacki’s “If Only We Had Met” is a series of tableaux inspired by historical found photographs.

Meet the artist at her opening reception on Friday, Aug. 2, at 6:30 p.m. during RAM’s “Free First Friday.” The show is on display through July 20, 2014.
