It was a packed house the opening night of Seth Armstrong’s “The Air Is Thick” and Erik Jones’ “Color|Full“. Robert Williams even paid Thinkspace a visit after a full day of book signings up at LAMAG. Both exhibits remain on view through April 18th, so please swing on by if you missed the opening reception. The shows really demand in person viewing to best appreciate them, from the numerous hidden details in Armstrong’s paintings to the three-dimensional aspects in Jones’ new works. Visit our Flickr account for full coverage of opening night and below are a few of our favorite shots.
