Hello! This weekend on Saturday, September 28th at 2 pm there will be a gallery talk and catalog release for Blue Collar, an exhibition featuring Anthony Adcock and Cleveland Dean. Much of what you are seeing in the photo above, is not what it seems to be, is all I will say. Come to this talk. I really think Cleveland and Anthony are unusual and exceptional. I'll moderate a discussion with them about their show and their art and other ancillary subjects. I have worked with Anthony for 5 years or so, and have always wanted to work with Cleveland, so here's my chance! Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art / 2320 W. Chicago Ave (map) / Saturday, September 28th, 2 PM. It's also a Gallery Walk day in the new West Town neighborhood, so come on out and check out our newest art scene.

As a final note, on Saturday evening, Oct 19, Spudnik Press Cooperative is having their annual benefit. I'm on the board so promoting this accordingly. This year's honoree is Audrey Niffenegger, who is a great artist and author. This year's theme is based on the game show "The Price is Right". We changed it to "The Price is Nice", so no one would yell at us. "Come on Down" as Bob Barker would say.... more details here!
