First Thursday

Jeffry Mitchell at the James Harris Gallery

James Harris of the James Harris Gallery

Director of the Microsoft Art Collection, Laura Matzer and her husband Tom

Collin Shutz, Jeffry Mitchell, and Mary Ann Peters have some really good drawings up at the James Harris Gallery. The gallery is collaborating with Jill Newhouse in New York to present a show titled, Junctions: Selected Drawings from Contemporary Artist and Modern Masters.
Davidson Contemporary has two shows up, Works on Paper, and a solo show of Dan Gualdoni, who did a
Ballinglen Art Foundation residency in County Mayo in Ireland and his paintings capture a beautiful atmospheric quality that is formed by translucent layers of color.
G.Gibson Gallery is showing Iain Stewart and Alicia Berger. Seems like an odd pairing, Alicia Berger is doing pop paintings using polk-a-dots, and Iain Stewart does very quiet photographs
captured in the early morning light, or as the daylight was fading at the end of the day. I liked both sets of work differently, and in the end, that works.
Howard House Gallery continues a show titled, New Sculpture Survey. Eric Geschke had a fun piece titled Idealized Explosion made of
polyurethane plastic, styrofoam, plaster, wood, aluminum, and acrylic. A charming piece by Diem Chau of carved Crayola's titled, Story Telling, was one of my favorites in the show.
Again it was a fun night out, weather was great, always good to see friends, both showing, and bumping into.

Hello Harold!
stumbled upon your spot here, love love love your new stuff. Saw you on the street the other day, but too busy you were to stop you.

Hope you are well.
