ICE Gallery, part of the Bread and Salt complex, recently opened an exhibition of work by Tom Driscoll. Much of the work is 15 years old but has never been exhibited until now. Driscoll's sculptures are evocative and colorful, and they seemingly defy physics (or at the very least challenge whatever you previously thought a wall should be used for). Driscoll — who studied with John Baldessari and Bob Matheny at Southwestern College in the late 1960s — has built an impressive reputation and body of work, and I'm looking forward to spying some new-to-us older pieces.

The space is open for appointment-style viewings, which has been the gallery's model since the pre-pandemic days. Plus, ICE is notable for its two large arched windows from the street, and you can see much of the exhibition by peeking through. But if you're feeling shy about appointment-only viewings, don't. They are everywhere now, and in many cases it's the only way that artists can get their work seen. And to quote the gallery's home page: "...not to worry, it's no bother."

Details: On view now by appointment. 1955 Julian Ave, Logan Heights. Free.
