Three-day bulletin


By some twist of fate, the town’s hopping with evening activities tonight, tomorrow and Friday. Here’s a few that sound good. (Libby told you about the Yuskavage/Mednick conundrum in her previous post. Sorry to be redundant):


For starters, Lisa Yuskavage talks with Claudia Gould at the ICA tonight at 6 p.m. (free with $2 or $3 admission). Read my last week’s PW review of the new, $50 Yuskavage monograph, “Lisa Yuskavage: Small Paintings, 1993-2004” for an update on my opinion (to wit, still don’t like it).


Also tonight, Arthur Mednick does a gallery talk at University of the Arts’ Rosenwald Wolf Gallery, 6-8 p.m. Libby told you about the beautiful, sexy work in her post. (image is a Mednick star from the show)

Then again, there’s the Print Center auction from 6-9 p.m. with an astonishing list of participating artists. Tickets $25. The Print Center is a great Philadelphia institution and most worthy of support. Highly recommended.

Tomorrow, Nov. 18

CAN (now called Center for Emerging Visual Artists) opens an alumni small works show featuring artblog pal, Judy Gelles, and Lesley Mitchell. Reception is 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Center’s Barclay Hotel digs, 18th St. across from the Art Alliance.


Masters re-mastered at Spector. Don’t miss it. Great artists, from Philadelphia, Brooklyn and the world, pay respects to some of the art world’s war horses. The reception is 6-9 p.m. These sound so great I have to list them all:
