fltgc: jack hanley, cheryl hazen & apex arts

much belated gallery visit: jack hanley gallery. i've heard nothing but good things about the place and i finally made it out. i was reminded of the space and the close proximity of it to my work when i was the armory this weekend. there was no more delaying this visit. jac couldn't make the visit, but i was able to convince linda to come along. it was a group show featuring:

fia backstrom, poetry and pottery

stephen kaltenbach, fellow californian

lastly there was an endearing video by mario garcia torres' a brief history of jimmie johnson's legency.

unexpected fltgc destination:
cheryl hazan. i would not normally go into this gallery. it's a little too commercial for my taste, but it was on the way to apex. i was drawn to the new artist, new works exhibit. i really like these mailbox like pieces that i can't recall the name of the artist and it's not posted on the gallery's site.

preview to next week's fltgc: kick my heart's ass at apex arts. i haven't been to apex since eggers' show. these short films about heartbreak reminded me why i love this space. i didn't have enough time to really view all the films. i spent most my time in booth 2, featuring david meiklejohn's dress rehearsal. i did not finish. i really want to see brett loudermilk, jessica sanders and jenny owen youngs pieces. booths 1 and 4 seemed the most popular tho.

here is linda enjoying booth 2.

apex rules because they are giving out free totes to advertise the place. simple, colorful totes with " big bag small space" printed on them. SCORE! i also got this from the exhibit which is a perfect description of mine:

Hey! This is David Meiklejohn. Thanks for checking out my video at the apexart show! That photo of your friend watching DRESS REHEARSAL makes me so incredibly happy.

Thanks again!
