The couple that makes together stakes their claims to our attention together: A show by husband and wife Sam Thurston and Marjorie Kramer at this cooperative gallery sees a departure for him and a retrospect for her. Thurston, admired as a painter and sculptor, is showing ceramics for the first time. Kramer, meanwhile, has self-portraits from 1970 to an unfinished work from this year (pictured) that show a woman perceiving her way through a life lived fully and examined well. The show opens today but note that the reception takes place at the weekend. DAVID COHEN
