Rainbow painting by Dalia Reyes; Unholy War triptych by Joyce Brienza.

U-M's North Campus Research Center (NCRC) houses two galleries that might be off the radar for some folks, but the spaces are always bubbling with compelling (and free) exhibitions that run for months at a time. 

Two new winter exhibitions opened Jan. 15 and continue through April 16, allowing you plenty of time to take in the sights.

NCRC's Rotunda Gallery presents Joyce Brienza's Floating Points, a collection of drawings by the Penny Stamps School of Art and Design faculty member. Brienza is a Detroit-based artist who is active in the performance collective "Cathartic Circle."

Meanwhile, over in the Connections gallery, Detroit-based multimedia artist Dalia Reyes presents Rainbow Body, a series of paintings that focus on "cosmic fantasy and visual meditation."

Both artists will be at a free reception for their shows on Wednesday, Jan. 31, from 5-7 pm (free parking after 5 pm), at the NCRC.
