last night i dragged j out to victoria's off the grid art crawl. a lot of the edgier galleries (read: not public galleries) banded together to create this night of revelry. so basically about twenty-six galleries agreed to stay open until ten pm on a friday night and you could wander in for free and check out what they had on display. many of the galleries had munchies and drinks on the go, getting a jump on the after party which was at open space gallery from ten pm until one am! here are some of my favourite images from the night.
photographs of the greenwashing exhibition at open space. visitors could use markers and collage to add their own notes on this map about business and areas that are known for green washing.
this piece was actually hidden amidst a clive powsey watercolour exhibition in dales gallery. the watercolours were good...but when i turned around and saw this piece i fell in love. something about it felt familiar, and a reading of the label told me what i subconsciously knew, it was by ira hoffecker, an artist we represent at the gallery i work at. i love the little bunch of colour in the top left corner. click here for my favourite hoffecker piece.
a quick photograph i took in chinatown where many of the galleries were.
the million steps leading up to ground zero* printmaking. it was worth the winding though...
