Hold Fast to Dreams

I'll be showing some photographs in a show opening tonight Friday at the Believe Inn.
Chinatown, NYC by Oscar Arriola
Erik DeBat has some mesmerizing geometric pieces that are in a different direction from other work I've seen by him.  Alex Bradley Cohen has a huge, fun drawing full of characters, some of which are replicated with some handmade fabric figures.  Aregentian artist Irana Douer has some beautiful mixed media drawings, David "COVE" Gonzalez is showing several canvases and drawings done in his distinctive abstracted character style that I love.  Kim Hoffman has some great pieces including two that include a Ginko leaf collage that meshes excellently with her artwork.  Ellen Greene has an amazing set of flash tattoo inspired imagery painted on white vintage leather gloves. Erik Harris has drawings and birdhouse-like structures made from relcaimed materials and there'll also be prints, paintings, and constructions by Mirtes Zwierzynski, Chris Silva, Lauren Feece, Andrew Schansberg, and Danny Mansmith.

I'm looking forward to this show because there's a great mix of work on the walls and I've always liked visiting this space.

There are 5 art openings (including this one) in the Bucktown/Wicker Park/West Town area opening tonight and I plan on visiting all of them.  The other 4 shows are listed in the entries below.
