Following a rapprochement between Art 180 and city officialdom, the “What Do You Stand For?” exhibit will be up on Monument Avenue through Sunday’s Easter on Parade. As for where they’ll go after that — maybe onto the yards of volunteering Monument residents? — I'd suggest following developments through Facebook.
The G40 has rolled into the Metro Space Gallery, 119 W. Broad St., where I was introduced to its basement that’s the size of a bowling alley. There’ll be music tonight, too, with themes varying per each venue.
At Gallery5, the G40 traveling exhibit “Weapons of Mass Change” opens.
Last night, I also got to peek into the previews of the work 1708 Gallery has gathered for its upcoming auction. It'd be a strong show even without the opportunity to buy the pieces in question. Nearby, Quirk has its "Flock" show up, curated by Alyssa C. Solomon, and I admired Chris Chase’s sculpture. Love this bird with its head stuck in a box. I have days like that.
At Ghostprint, check out paintings by the artist George Pratt. With Steven Budlong and James McGillion, Pratt created the documentary See You in Hell, Blind Boy, chronicling a journey through the Mississippi Delta researching his blues novel of the same name. The film won Best Feature Documentary at the New York International Independent Film Festival and was accepted and shown at film festivals in Santa Barbara, Calif.; Nashville, Tenn.; and Hot Springs, Ark.
There's plenty of reason to get out there and see what you can see. Have a good Easter, everyone.
