Animations – Arthouse
Even though I was in the building every Saturday, I never sat down (or stood up) to watch the videos.
From Marfa To Sudari – Flatbed Press
I didn’t catch the show until after its stated closing. So I’m not sure I have a good opinion ’bout it.
Panopticon – Mass Gallery
Peculiar pairing of artists. There was an alleyway/ Big Brother/ film noir/ Communist regime/ prison feel to Dustin Kilgore’s installation. It would have been creepy if the layout wasn’t so fun exploring. Jaime Zuverza’s paintings were weird in surreal image-making, but they didn’t attract me. NOT BAD
Word Play -Scanlan Gallery @ St. Stephen’s
Never made it out.
Testimonio – La Pena
This extended exhibit was a posthumous show. There were numerous variations of this one goddess figure. That lent to the altar feeling the space had. I feel weird rating it, so I won’t.
Voces De Fuego – La Pena
It would have been nice if it was in the gallery and not on a restaurant wall. NOT BAD
The Gathering – Courtney DiSabato & Sean Gaulager
I always thought it was a good idea to try and merge an empty house for sale and an art show. Now I’m not so sure. Not that the work was sub par or anything. Instead, there was something false about seeing the work on the walls without any other signs of life. The works themselves were okay. They were polished but had a stale air about them. But I blame the empty house for that. NOT BAD
I’ll tell you ’bout what I sees.
