Unimportant objects past their prime usually end up in landfills. This includes means of transportation like old airplanes, boats, motorcycles and trains. With that in mind, artist Bethany Hadden is giving life to the disregarded slabs of metal through her latest collection of paintings. You can see them all, including "Deserted" (pictured) at the Rust in Peace exhibit at Green Rice Gallery. Exhibit continues through Nov. 28. Green Rice Gallery, 451 E. 36th St. 704-344-0300. www.green-rice.com.
