Oh, Snap! All right, all you luddites, this one is for you. Featuring Wichita artists Conan Fugit and A.P. Vague, Snap-Line Graffiti showcases snap-line drawings and shapshots that are meant to raise questions about the disposability of technology. The drawings will be made from using construction chalk lines responding to the surfaces of public structures. The 960 snapshots in the exhibit feature video, photography and outdated equipment. The evening begins at 5pm and continues through the night with an artists' talk at 6:30pm. The doors at Liggett Studio, 314 S. Kenosha Ave., close at 8pm, so make sure you make it to the exhibit before then.
Come Together. In conjunction with actress Lynn Redgrave's one-woman presentation of Nightingale, the Tulsa PAC Gallery also hosts "Journal: A Mother and Daughter's Recovery from Breast Cancer," a collection of photographs taken by Redgrave's daughter Annabel Clark that document her mother's battle with breast cancer. Redgrave's journal entries accompany each photograph. Clark said this of the exhibit: "My photographs and her journal entries tell a parallel story of an illness that I now look back on as something we were lucky to go through. While they highlight upsetting moments of vulnerability and hopelessness, they also show her incredible will to over come this disease..." The PAC Gallery, 3rd & Cincinnati, is open Mon.-Fri., 10am-5:30pm. The exhibit runs through April 27. Admission is free.

Tour of Italia. Who doesn't love admiring lush, serene images of landscapes? Agoraphobics maybe. But that's it. The Philbrook Museum of Art, 2727 S.

Featuring a selection of Italian landscape masterpieces from the world-famous Uffizi collection, the exhibition illustrates the evolution of Italian landscape painting from a backdrop in the Renaissance through the 18th century, when landscape itself became the centerpiece in many paintings. Museum hours are Tues.-Sunday, 10am-5pm and Thursday evenings until 8pm. Call 748-5385 or visit philbrook.org for more information. (Pictured above: Botticelli's "The Adoration of the Magi.")
