(Okay, they're apricots.) Once again, we find ourselves falling for the art that Grandma knows can bring sunshine on days of rain: in this case, bright trompe l’oeil works of lush apricots lounging in a bed of fluffy lavender tissue paper. Denise Mickilowski has more such timeless treasures amid a group show titled "Transmitting From the Third Planet From the Center of the Universe" at Fischbach Gallery through August 14. —Emma Pearse
