Several promising exhibitions open this weekend, and tonight and tomorrow night you can practice your small talk at the receptions.

Connor Contemporary Art and Gogo Art Projects: Take Cribs and boil it down to blueprints and you’ll get Mark Bennett‘s show of architectural drawings of famous sitcom homes at Connor. Then wander over to see Matthew Sutton‘s “The Kudzu Project.” Two parties in one! Fri., 3/2, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Marsha Mateyka Gallery
: Take the opportunity to ask Swedish artist Madeleine
why she calls her collection of abstract paintings “Song of the Naked Trees.” Fri., 3/2, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Curator’s Office: Pretty appropriate for a “micro-gallery setting” to host an exhibit called “Business” that features be-doodled business cards splayed across a desk and copier. Sat., 3/3, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Hemphill Fine Arts: “Tug of War” has “lowbrow” art that’s colorful and looks fun. Sat., 3/3, from 6:30to 8:30 p.m. There’s also a book signing with artists SHAG, Glenn Barr, Bob Dob, Elizabeth McGrath and Billy Shire on Sunday, 3/4, at 3 p.m.
