The paintings of Will Northerner follow a crazy quilt style, layering stenciled imagery and translucent colors. A Reader illustrator for more than 15 years, he's having his first one-man gallery show in Chicago since 1984. "Random Access: New Paintings by Will Northerner" opens this Friday night with a free reception from 6 to 10 PM at the Aron Packer Gallery, in suite 205 of the Flat Iron Building, 1579 N. Milwaukee. The painting shown on the right is called Gardener, described by Northerner as an "appreciation" of the late Tom of Finland, best known for his erotically exaggerated portraits of the gay leather crowd. "Random Access" will remain on view through February 18. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays noon to 6 PM and Sundays noon to 5 PM. Call 862-5040 for more.
