The impressive beauty of Andrew Baird's portraits isn't just in their striking realism or vibrant but subdued colors--it's in the fact that the painter never picks up a brush. Using a "stir stick," the Colorado artist drips paint onto a canvas on the floor, slowly layering the material until a fully realized image appears. It's Jackson Pollock meets Andy Warhol, but the result is one-of-a-kind. Tue-Sat 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sun 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
