Inspired by the folktales she reads to her daughter, Ajean Lee Ryan's (an assistant professor at CSU) pastel-and-ink drawings are simultaneously mythological and realistic. The images—akin to Coraline or the Brothers Grimm—layer fairy tale worlds with abstract visions to create haunting landscapes that recall those childhood stories with an eerie wistfulness. Fri noon-9 p.m.; Sat noon-5 p.m.
