    [ 2nd Floor Projects ]: Amanda Kirkhuff - When Someone Wants to Leave (As Bad As Your Want Them to Stay); Amy Scholder - Dear Amanda, Limited Edition Broadside.

    Comment by AB: Some worthy work by Amanda Kirkhuff, likely in the realm of autobiographical, but with more than enough meat on the bone for us third parties accrue cognitive as well as aesthetic benefits. Always a pleasure to see art by an artist who actually knows how to paint. Worth a visit.

    White Walls Gallery: Skewville.

    Review by Mairead O'Connor: Twin brothers Ad and Droo form Skewville (they're from New York). This urban inspired exhibition turns the gallery into a playground. Art = Fun & Play. Gotta love it!

    Comment by AB: The gallery is transformed into an exhilarating artistic amusement park with multitudinous options-- rides, games, tests of skill... and of course, plenty of art. Recommended.

    The Shooting Gallery: Ritual - New Works by Charmaine Olivia.

    Review by Mairead O'Connor: Olivia's artwork is dark and obscure, yet elegant. This exhibition is very personal to the artist. The gallery is decorated as though it is her bedroom and many of the pieces are self-portraits.
