local color

Last week, artist and Heiner intern, Amy Braden and I set out armed with our cameras and a long list of local exhibitions to see. "Gallery day," as we called it, was dedicated to visiting as many contemporary spots as we could to get a better feel for what is currently being shown in and around the city. While it was impossible to make it to everything in one day, we were pretty impressed by how many spaces we were able to see. We made it to Flashpoint, Artisphere, the Arlington Arts Center, Contemporary Wing, Hamiltonian Gallery, Adamson Gallery, Transformer, Conner Smith and G Fine Art (whew)! Below are a few snapshots from the day. If you haven't made it to these places yet- go! You won't regret it.
