Your look ahead at Valley Arts

Polly is back: "Artist's Collection," through Feb. 23, Fox Optical & Gallery, 28 E. Third St., Bethlehem, brings the work of Allentown artist Polly Wood, above, back to public view. Wood is showing a range of work, from her well-known large exaggerated-realism portraits of compelling women whose eyes seem to follow you from the canvas to beyond the frame and around the gallery; to new, colorful, fanciful abstracts, to two-dimensional hanging sounding sculptures you can tap with a mallet. Attend next month's First Friday, 7-10 p.m. Feb. 1, in the Fox Gallery and hear jazz vocalist Roberta Meek, accompanied by a keyboardist. Information: 610-332-2400
