The Ticket: What’s happening in the local arts world
By: Cate McQuaid

GERRY BERGSTEIN: BODY POLITIC New offerings from the Cambridge painter, whose work has always teetered between existential neurosis and wry humor, roil with gargantuan dark forms made by scratching through white paint to reveal blackness beneath. As ever, small figures sometimes appear, as if trying to make sense of the situation. Good luck to them; things look bleak. Through Feb. 29. Gallery NAGA, 67 Newbury St., 617-267-9060,
