    Paul Mahder Gallery Gallery: Bad Days Made Beautiful - Migdalia Valdes.

    Comment by AB: Migdalia Valdes creates her dynamic nonrepresentational photographic images without the use of a camera-- simply by exposing film to light. So that's pretty slick. According to Valdes, her images are intended to represent the feelings and moods of their audiences.

    Studio 3579: Eric Rewitzer - Brush and Blade, New Paintings and Prints.

    Review by RWM: Cool mini prints reference The City's iconic spaces, plus mini landscape and city paintings, and several larger works round out the show. Though the minis are small enough to fit in one's pocket, they evoke the larger city and its places.

    Fabric8: (1)4th Anniversary Show.

    Artists: Ursula X Young, Reuben Rude, Erik Otto, Norm Maxwell, Romanowski, Daniel Fleres.

    Review by RWM: Ursula X. Young steals the show with her muse, but much other fun art to be seen here. Cartoons and odd figures adorn the walls. Plenty of action f taking place here tonight under the lights.

    Review by RWM: All sorts of wonders on display. The variety is startling. The sculptures shown defy expectations. Wildness haunts the night, offering itself as spectacle.
