Folks were loving the magnifying glasses we had set out to further delve into Allison’s hyper-detailed paintings as well as the trays of lil’ smokies (in honor of all the sausages prevalent in Allison’s work). We had great responses to both the work of Allison Sommers as well as that of Joao Ruas, who was on hand for the opening festivities all the way from Brazil. Several artists were on hand to support… Ekundayo, Andrew Hem, Amy Sol, Yoskay Yamamoto, Nate Frizzell, Zoso, Peekaboo, Dabs Myla, Mia and others were spoted opening night.

Both Arrested Motion and Dailydujour were on hand to capture the action as well, so be sure to keep an eye out on both sites for add’l coverage.

Both shows on view through June 4th and some gems are still available from both shows.
