Tonight is the Gallery Night opening of “The Modern Landscape,” an exhibition at Luckystar Gallery, 207 E. Buffalo St., on the third floor of The Marshall Building in the beautiful Historic Third Ward of Milwaukee USA. Openings are good. They act as mental bookends. After this, I’ll continue with the series some more. Adding new things. Subtracting others.
Openings are good too, to see old friends and colleagues, former students, collectors, family: the whole lot of ‘em. It’s always good poke one’s head out of the studio every now and again. Gauge the temperature of stuff and things.
A few weeks ago, I got an email from Eugene Sobieski, the son of the former owners of John Sobieski Wholesale Meats in Detroit. He saw the painting online and wrote to tell me how nice it was to see a painting of his parents’ store. Art matters.
See you tonight.
