Artist Lindsay Pichaske is known for her uncannily lifelike yet surreal animal sculptures, which are often ---- but not always ---- made of clay, incorporating sticks, seeds, beads, sequins and other un­or­tho­dox material. For her solo exhibition “Everything That Rises,” which opens Friday at Flashpoint Gallery from 6 to 8 p.m., Pichaske has created what’s being billed as a “drawing installation.”

Using a network of knotted human hair suspended from threads, the artist renders ---- or, rather, suggests, in a kind of 3--D sketch ---- the body of a horse. It’s a continuation of her artistic exploration of our connection to ---- and detachment from ---- the animal world, and our animal selves.
