Robert Koch Gallery: Tamas Dezso - Notes for an Epilogue.
Comment by AB: Tamas Dezso captures the strangely romantic anguish of the environment, isolation and inhabitants of Romanian communities that have been long since abandoned by progressive society. You can practically imagine yourself there. Recommended viewing.

Zach Bruder art describes a unique and mysterious environment.
The McLoughlin Gallery: LuxPop - Bruce Makowsky and Devon Almarinez.
Comment by AB: A distressingly crass assessment of glamour, stardom, pop culture, acquisition and status, which I suppose is the point. While I appreciate the craftsmanship, I'm relieved to bid it adieu.

Spoke Art Gallery: Wakefulness - Alex Garant.
Comment by AB: It's a pretty good trick, but frankly it's wearing a little thin. As the great David Essex once said, "And where do we go from here?"
