GALLERIES

By Kathy Garrett

MIT's Hayden Gallery has put on a show of Drawings by Five Abstract Expressionist Painters. Abstract Expressionism as a movement put American art in the top position it has today, but these five painters--Gorky, Guston, Kline, deKooning and Pollack--would be outstanding even If they hadn't formed a style. The drawings are very different from their plantings, but just as visually exciting, and this show shouldn't be missed. The gallery's at 160 Memorial Drive, daily 10-4, Tuesdays also 6-9, through March 6.

The Wellesley College Museum is exhibiting photographs by Holland Day--an American pictorial photographer of the early 20th century. Pictorial photographers tried to prove that photography was really an art, by using soft-focus techniques and shooting romanticized subject matter. Day Isn't exhibited very much, and I've never seen his work, but there are photographs by Gertrude Kasebier in the show too, and she's very good. Through March 4.

The New England Aquarlum still wants you to visit the new Dolphin Exhibit.
