‘Frank Gohlke: Miles and Miles of Things I’ve Never Seen’

NEW BEDFORD — With only 10 days left, 2012 is unlikely to get a better exhibition subtitle than “Frank Gohlke: Miles and Miles of Things I’ve Never Seen.” The show runs through Jan. 27 at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth’s University Art Gallery.

That sly subtitle notwithstanding, it’s obvious that Gohlke has seen the things in the 11 large black-and-white diptychs that make up the show. Certainly his camera has. What Gohlke means is that these open fields in north Texas and broken-down cardboard boxes in his living room are things he’s never noticed or closely observed. They hide in plain sight — until someone with as keen an eye as Gohlke pays attention and leads us to do so, too.
