    Varnish Fine Art: Cocktail Party & Special Announcement.

    Comment by AB: Varnish Fine art announces that they will be closing their gallery, working from an office, and moving their operations primarily online. They will also be curating periodic site-specific shows at various locations around The City. A glimpse of the art world future? We shall see.

    Et al. Gallery: An exhibition which comes and goes as it pleases.

    Artists: Sean Talley, Laurie Reid, Claire Nereim, Rick Bahto & Julia Holter.

    Comment by AB: Yet another cryptic experience courtesy of the folks at Et al. Gallery featuring sneaky sculpture by Laurie Reid, graphite on paper and sculpture by Sean Talley, video art by Rick Bahto & Julia Holter and more. According to the testimony, this show "drifts into view in the gaps between other programs and may hide, linger, and/or reemerge. It appears often only from a certain angle like a single frame in a lenticular or the screen of an ATM. It is lithe and unrooted." I rest my case.
