Victory for Tyler opens tomorrow

Victory for Tyler poster

Libby and I were up at Crane Arts last night after hearing the AMAZING William Kentridge lecture. (Libby told you about it) It was Second Thursday and the Crane had openings at Nexus, 201 Gallery and inLiquid. Nearby, Tower Gallery celebrated the opening of its first big group exhibit, an outstanding figurative show. Second Thursdays seem to be working well — all venues were hopping when we got there, and we observed a serious number of Vox Populi members showing support, something they couldn’t do before when everybody had First Friday openings at the same time.

Meanwhile, also at the Crane, in the Icebox Project Space, is the Victory for Tyler exhibit, a benefit show for Tyler School of Art’s exhibitions and public programs. I’m not sure what that means exactly, but presumably some part of the money from sale of works goes to Tyler. The show devoted to painting was juried by ICA’s Jenelle Porter. There are many names in the show whose works are known and loved by us here at artblog. See you up there.

[Ed. note: Be forwarned. The police are ticketing cars parked in the median strip on American Street. They say the median is a “moving” lane (like a passing lane) and it’s bordered by two solid yellow lines which means no parking. Many folks got tickets last night. Do not park in the middle of American Street.]
