Opening this Friday April 22 at Valkarie Gallery is “Bad A** Behavior,” a new collection of works by painter Danyl Cook. After a few years of nature-themed pastel work, Cook is returning to a previously well-received post-graduate series that depicts some rather tough-looking babies. If any of these wee ones were encountered in a dark alley, the natural response would be to turn and run. Or maybe make friends and party. Either way, the show looks like a fun one.
