This past Friday, June 19th, I attended the opening of three (yes, THREE!) exhibitions at School 33 Art Center, which also served as the Kickoff event for the Artscape Gallery Network. It was a lively opening indeed! The School 33 Main Gallery houses the Studio Artist Biennial Exhibition, with solo exhibitions “Pentimento” and “Waiting for Something to Happen,” in the Members’ Gallery and Project Space on the second floor, respectively. These exhibitions are now on view until August 22nd, 2015. In this blog post I am sharing photos from the Studio Artist Biennial and discussing some of the works I saw – posts about the two additional solo exhibitions to come!
