Like Sigourney Weaver, Harrison Ford and other actors of a certain age, Etherton just keeps getting better as it gets older. Now entering its 24th season, Tucson's favorite contemporary art gallery also has a national rep for photography. Proprietor Terry Etherton skillfully balances painting and sculpture exhibitions with shows of vintage and cutting-edge photography. In the last year, Nancy Tokar Miller's wonderfully translucent paintings shared the sleek downtown space with Sally Gall's mysterious cave photographs. Painters Cynthia Miller and Gail Marcus-Orlen took radically different-but colorful-new approaches to still life. Jock Sturges, best known for nudes, this season startled viewers with radiant photos of young Irish girls, all of them fully clothed.
