Though Zeke Berman is billed as a photographer, he's as much a sculptor, building still lifes to photograph out of dishes, tools, newspapers, and other ordinary objects. (He dismantles them when the photographs are finished.) A solo show of his work opens tonight at the Catherine Edelman Gallery, 300 W. Superior, with a reception from 5 to 8. It runs through October 9; on that day Berman will be in town for a closing reception from 1 to 4. Call 266-2350 for info. Thursday, October 7, at 6:30 Berman talks about his work at the Ferguson Theater of Columbia College, 600 S. Michigan. Admission is $5; call 663-1600.
