San Francisco artist Jen Pack returns to Pulliam Deffenbaugh with lustrous works from the intersection of fine art and fabric. Pack stretches strips of silk chiffon onto rectangular and rhomboid panels, creating jewel-like compositions that couldn't be cuter if they tried. Some of the works have conceptual ambitions—hanging sculpturally from the ceiling, like Monolith, or puddling down onto the floor, Rapunzel-like, like Harriet. 929 NW Flanders St., 228-6665. Closes Oct. 28.
Miles Cleveland Goodwin is a student at PNCA with a bright future. His paintings at Mark Woolley are thematically uneven but show a promising, neo-Flemish technique and a facility in eerie, narrative storytelling. Meanwhile, Rachel Denny evolves nicely, building on her signature multimedia collages with some promising installation work. Denny's sculptural vignettes portray polar bears and moose in snowy landscapes, betraying the increasingly pervasive influence that Bruce Conkle-style eco-whimsy is having on a new generation of local artists. 120 NW 9th Ave., Suite 210, 224-5475. Closes Oct. 31.
