“When Love Comes to Town,” an exhibition of mixed-media paintings by George Negroponte, is at the Anita Rogers Gallery in SoHo through April 27. Created over the last several years, the works use house paint, Spackle, gesso, wallpaper, dirt, enamel, inventory labels, and spray paint on canvas, as well as found objects from the woods surrounding his house in Springs.

The show will also include works on paper, first begun in Sweden in 2008 and then set aside for a decade before being revisited this past year in collaboration with his wife, the artist Virva Hinnemo.
