John Ryan’s brightly colored criticisms of pop culture have taken on consumerism, the adulation of sports heroes and the commodification of everything from sex to gasoline. He’s painted on windowpanes, cabinet doors and even some conventional surfaces. In his new show, Mug Shots and Millionaires, Ryan takes a more technically ambitious and controlled approach, shifting his emphasis on portraitures of familiar faces, among other things. The show opens with a reception from 7-10 tonight and continues through November 22 at William Rupnik Gallery (1667 East 40th St., Unit 1A, 216.533.5575). Admission is free. — Michael Gill
