During FotoWeek, seemingly mismatched exhibitions pop up regularly at local galleries, which explains why both Icelandic landscapes and photos of demolition derbies are on display at Hillyer Art Space this month. The images of Iceland are infinitely quieter and more meditative, of course. The collection’s most expressive images are also the most melancholy: Katrín Elvarsdóttir’s photographs of run-down RVs in nature and Friðgeir Helgason’s bits of forlorn detritus amid sprawling landscapes, from soccer goals to playground slides (shown). Traces of humanity, evidently, prove more interesting than pure nature.

Flight Wine Bar has some new additions to its food and drink menus. Rather than the nine flights on the menu before, there are now 20 flights to choose from, including “not your grandma’s chardonnay” and wines from the Austro-Hungarian empire (and Germany). All flights are $18 for three wines. There are also now half bottles available and more wines by the glass. Pair your drink with new dishes like seafood bouillabaisse and zucchini fritters.
