In this week's issue of Westword, art critic Michael Paglia examines three shows, one of which is Not All Borthwicks Were Noblemen, which is being exhibited at the Ironton Studios & Gallery through October 22.

Paglia writes:

"Though there is an elaborate historical narrative that underlies the pieces in this exhibit -- a massacre of Borthwick's noble ancestors at Flodden, Scotland, at the hands of Englishmen using long bows -- the story is only obliquely and abstractly told in the various elements that make up the show. Personal genealogy and history are not the only themes Borthwick embraces; others are aggression, violence, ritual and the masculine cult of the warrior."
