Catharine Clark Gallery: Julie Heffernan - Waters Rise; Teresa Braun - Who From Below
Comment by AB: You're never quite sure whether you're witnessing the beginning or the end in these fantabulously extravagant narrations. The colors and compositional configurations look kinda like JMW Turner, but on steroids. Definitely worth seeing.

Jack Fischer Gallery at Minnesota Street: Agelio Batle - murmur / tremble
Comment by AB: Survey of work by the artist, but the centerpiece of the event is a life-sized cast graphite skeleton on a vibrating table. Sheets of paper are placed beneath the skeleton and it literally vibrates drawings of itself. The process will continue sheet-by-sheet until the skeleton literally vibrates itself into oblivion. Required viewing. I'm layin' a big fat Pick of the Month on this one.
