Friday Night....

It was a good night for gallery hopping Friday night in Pilsen. For those we ran into, so nice to see you!

We were impressed with the installation work of Barbara Hashimoto at the "CS:38" show at 2003 S. Halsted. Not only did she shred junk mail for several weeks to make these tiny mountains of confetti, she photographed people clowning in it. Also she was very gracious in person.

Kind of odd even for us were the actors dressed in all gray monologuing barefoot throughout the gallery. ????

After a glass of wine I finally worked up the nerve to jump in too. You have to.

Earlier that night at Michelle Litvin gallery we enjoyed the truly intelligent, minimal work of Mike Famous and Ben Dallas.
They create pieces not together but pieces that play off each other and are hung to show the balance between the 2 artists.

I like the amount of attention given to such small pieces and the use of space in exhibition.

Ben Dallas

Mike Famous is the smartly dressed one in the middle. You can't tell but he was wearing the freshest glasses I've seen on a man in awhile. Sort of a half-cream half-woodgrain style. We picked Mike's brain forever only to run into SNL Alum Nora Dunn on the way out. Funny.
