Barely there.

Above, an incomplete look-about at 'Plotlines' by Elise Sheehan (undesired golden glow courtesy yellow lights inside on a grey day outside). It's a lovely, quiet show, whose elements crop up from Milly's front window to back wall: ambiguous signposts, ladders to nowhere, intricate illegible maps.
