Totes excited about this show next weekend. Matt Stolle at Andrew Rafacz. Opening Dec. 12th. Matt's hilariously minimalist website is here.
You can read an interesting interview with Matt about his 2008 work at Andrew Rafacz here.
I also need to check out this Austin Eddy show at GOLDEN (A hip apartment gallery in Boystown?! who knew this was here? Awesome!) before it closes on the 12th. Can't wait to see these paintings in person, because I'm already loving them way too much. Eddy is a 2009 SAIC grad-- check out his website here.
On Friday (the 4th) I went to the Hashbrown one-year anniversary at Spudnik Press in West Town (1621 W. Hubbard) this weekend-- a cool little event with tasty treats, a randomized free print, and a fun performance by the very silly but completely earnest Tiny Cover Band (with tiny instruments! joy!). Everybody did the twist, with great abandon. Spudnik is a great space for printmaking, with affordable classes and convenient open studio time. I just wish I lived a little closer to be able to take advantage of it more.
