Even more reason to check out the show, which runs from Fri 9/23 to Fri 10/14. “We all played it in some form or another when we were kids. Conventional, make-believe, real, surreal. In Wall Eye Gallery’s FINAL exhibition, four artists, Stephanie Rond, Stephanie Lipscomb, Sharon Dorsey, and Linda Ayala recall what it meant to ‘play house.’ Are we who we thought we’d be? Childhood dreams crushed or realized? Or are we now playing on our own terms?” Wall Eye Gallery, 5304 Detroit Ave. Cleveland, 216.640.7769, www.walleyegallery.com
