We’re def stopping by on the way to the NKB to check out what Gina Louise and DC Ice are up to ;)
we don’t do clever / first amendment
jennifer davis is having a show with jake keeler on saturday. jen’s work is just.. twisted. yet somehow manages to still comes across as sweet.. you really have to see it in person to get the full effect – but you can sort of get an idea here + jake’s work looks cool from what i have seen (online).. for a wordier, “art review-ish” take on the show – go here and read rod smith’s stuff.. otherwise, just take my word for it that the work is cool enough to take me way out of my way on a busy night
7-9pm @ first amendment
Special debut performance by The Book of Right On and deejays Wes Winship and Mike the 2600 King
st paul art crawl / the northern warehouse
i’m generally too lazy to huff it over to st paul very often but gina louise & other friends are showing at the art crawl today, too.. well worth the trip if i can get another one of gina’s pieces :) 12-8pm @ the northern warehouse building
NOTE: we’re heading over to annie’s b-day bash after these..
“Make it pretty, please.” It’s rule one for painters Shawn McNulty and Scott Wenner..
They may maintain disparate styles and approaches but the root philosophy is the same, which is a belief in the power of beauty in art and the necessity of a painting to be first and foremost aesthetically pleasing. Before a work can challenge you, delight you, depress you, or repulse you, it must have your undivided attention. And everyone knows, only the beautiful get attention
both artists offer abstract works that are seemingly simple (at first look, anyway) and beautiful – check it out this saturday @ the opening reception
when : this saturday (03.07.09), 7pm – 11pm
where: rosalux gallery, mpls
show runs march 04th – 31st
gina louise is in the new group show @ mill district arts gallery this saturday – this is a new collective and I’m not yet familiar with the other artists involved (or even if this place has a website) but i am excited to see the space..
gina louise makes great paintings – i actually still owe her money for a piece i got at the 11on18 show.. sht
when: Saturday, December 6
where: mill district arts gallery, 1023 washington ave, dt mpls
when: 2pm – 8pm
head down to the riverview theater and catch the 3rd (and final) debate between Senators Obama and McCain with hundreds of like-minded strangers (ok i’m assuming.. if you’re heading to the riverside to see a presidential debate = you’re like-minded)
of course, it would probably be more productive to watch the debate with your parent(s) or some “undecided” friend/co-worker and do your part to covert them… but so much more enjoyable to get riled up with a mob that agrees with you
the show starts at 8pm on wednesday, they’re waiving the usual $3 admission fee and it runs for 90 minutes.. which means you can make it to the triple rock before the free bacon is gone (unless you have a job, in which case there’s just enough time to get home and catch the daily show / colbert report)
. . .
if you are not yet registered to vote – tomorrow is the last day to pre-register..
