Yesterday afternoon I shared with you my very high recommendation to attend the opening of Andrew Hurst's solo exhibit at English Kills this Saturday. There are a few other openings going on in the same general environs that evening, so in the event that you're looking to do some deeper events-planning, here are some additional items to add to your agenda.
One of the other openings is at Parallel Art Space, the new manifestation of the gallery formerly known as Camel Art Space. Their new location will be christened on Saturday with an exhibit called Alter Minimal. Aiming to expand—or if I may, complicate—the minimalist, post-minimalist dialogue, the exhibition will feature works by Clinton King, Lance Lankford, Gary Petersen, Suzanne Stroebe and Andrew Zarou.
Another opening is at 950 Hart Gallery, located not too far away at its eponymous address. Their opening reception is for an exhibit called Everything That Rises Must Converge, which will feature work by six different photographers, all of whom aim their gazes at their neighborhoods in search of surroundings-scoping and self-probing visions.
Also, eateries and bars are plentiful between and around all of these places, in case you care to make it a long day of art and food and getting gradually wasted.
