What can three artists from the U.K. teach us about American political themes? Find out while exploring the works of Dan Baldwin, Dale Grimshaw, and Jonathan Darby. Baldwin's style is like a punk-rock collage, blending elements from bones to the American flag and cartoon rabbits. Darby paints haunting faces of African children, creating chilling and powerful statements about the haves and the have-nots. Grimshaw's paintings channel the silencing, high-collar tone of Renaissance precision. The subjects of love, life, death, and innocence are so skillfully executed that you'll walk out of True Brits globally conscious, if a little cynical. Tue-Fri 2-6 p.m.; Sat noon-6 p.m.
