On First Thursday, as viewers filed through Augen Gallery, many of them reached out, trying to touch the apparition-like holographs in James Minden’s series, Real/Unreal. Minden painstakingly scratches geometric forms into treated black plastic, creating 3-D effects in wall pieces and LED-lit sculptures. The works are less glossy than those in his last show, affording a more elegant finish and increased light play between deep and shallow scratches. This show is hard to beat for sheer “gee whiz!” appeal. Through March 30.
