What we want to see Friday

For this First Friday we suggest a show whose name we cannot pronounce — wildeornes but we like the image by Beth Brandon and we want to know more about that word and about her work. Also, this is the month of challenging poetic exhibit titles, including One Long Funeral Song at 1026 and Before You Wake, Before You Vanish at Copy.

Art Syndicate guru Derek Ihnat organized a two-person collaborative show at Space 1026. Monica Canilao and Kyle Ranson are both out of town artists (from San Francisco) and we don’t know their works but that’s all the more reason to go see the show. Check out the images on their respective websites for a preview.

David Dunn of Copy organized a 3-person show with works by three up-and-comers Isaac Schell, Becky Suss and Damian Weinkrantz. The theme seems to be domestic. Artblog pal and Copy co-founder Annette Monnier will moderate an artist talk/zine release on Wednesday August 27th, 7pm.
