There's been a request for a reminder: Reminder! See you out there tonight.

Brett Anderson's Promethean Truth & Glamour is a reductive woodcut. It's part of Texture of Being, an exhibition of woodcuts and linocuts curated by Brian Lane, opening tomorrow night at Cullom Gallery.
I got a preview of Texture of Being at Cullom Gallery this past weekend, and it's rich, rich, rich.
Robert Yoder opens his first show at Platform Gallery, called DILF!. It's a humorous title, but his statement is more concrete and personal than I've ever seen Yoder be:
I have recently introduced large amounts of black into the paintings. The density of these works creates a roughness and adds a punk/SM aesthetic to the overall collection. I began drawing again, they are graphic, hard and unapologetic with their subject matter and intention. They are coming from a untapped place within me, a place that struggles with addiction and shame and socially un-accepted fantasies.
Aaliyah Gupta's fragile layers of painting are at Core.
Evan Blackwell's sculptural adaptations of contemporary consumption are at Foster/White.
