The Brooklyn Paper

"Susan Homer: A Bird’s Tale" opens at Metaphor Contemporary Art in Boerum Hill on Jan. 12, with a reception from 6 pm to 9 pm.

Homer references elements drawn from her rooftop garden, Audubon prints, china patterns and Victorian greeting cards, among other inspirations in making her large-scale oil paintings. Her "Wren Tea," oil on canvas is pictured.

Also opening on Wednesday is Lauren Gohara’s "New York Feathers," an installation of trompe l’oeil miniature paintings of a single floating feather.

The gallery is located at 382 Atlantic Ave. between Hoyt and Bond streets in Boerum Hill. Regular gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, from noon to 6 pm. For more information, call (718) 254-9126 or visit
