Lockwood Dennis 
(Through 7/27) After you see his woodcuts, it makes perfect sense that Northwest artist Lockwood “Woody” Dennis (1937–2012) was born when he was. He seems to have absorbed the beautifully simple style of the Works Progress Administration posters in their heyday, when he was a tot: a bit abstracted and Art Deco–tinged, maybe reminiscent in their subject matter—mostly machinery and cityscapes—of socialist-realist industrialism, but nevertheless as thoroughly American as a Sousa march.
