The artists in Shift, the new show at Able Baker Contemporary (29 Forest Ave., Portland), use “reflections, imperfect symmetry and pairs, and mirroring” to reveal the difference between reality and fakery, according to curator Tracy McKena. The exhibit includes work in various media by Rose Marasco, Paolo Arao, Jen Hitchings, Emilie Stark-Menneg and others. 917-545-6235. ablebakercontemporary.com.
