First Friday: Paper Work at Snyderman Works Gallery and Tear it Up, Tear it Down at Grizzly Grizzly

There's a great show at Snyderman Works Gallery that opened Friday, called "Paper Work", curated by Alex Conner.  It's a large, sprawling exhibition that includes conventional works on paper and sculptural constructions as well. Andi and I had favorites: Lucia Thome and Terri Saulin Frock.

Tear it Up, Tear it Down is a 3 person video show at Grizzly Grizzly that's frenetic and engaging, and includes stop-motion, collage and digital animation: Kelly Sears, Kelly Gallagher, and Martha Colburn.  My photos sucked, but here are two opening shots.  Wish I could credit who is who here, I'd have to go back and see it again (it's worth a visit!).

MINIMAX at Bullet Space

Andi, Sam and I went up to NY two years back (October 2015 I think) to see some old friends.  While there we dropped by Bullet Space; our friend Amanda knew somebody in the show. I started to write a draft post about it here and then...um, got distracted.  I suck at blogging.

I made a 2017 New Year's commitment to blog regularly here, so this morning started going through unfinished posts.  There's one about Citywide Philly that is worth finishing, so I'll come back to that sometime this spring.  Others I just dumped.  But I really liked this MiniMax show and felt it would be a shame to just delete it altogether.

So here's the draft from 2015.  It was a great show.  I literally (and unfortunately) have no words

If you were in this show let me know and I'll caption the images!
