This is one I really wish I could be at.
Opening tonight with a BBQ to celebrate is Gate City Greetings at Southfirst Gallery in Brooklyn. Featuring work from UNCG MFA grads Nickola Dudley, Matt Hayes, Harriet Hoover, Branch Richter, Amy Stibich, and Clark Williamson, the show should be amazing.
Their thesis show at the Weatherspoon blew my socks off and if their experience is anything like mine, having the work whittled down and condensed does a lot to clarify and set the strengths in relief against the work of others’. There’s a catalog with an essay by yours truly. Congratulations to these artists, all of whom I consider friends.
Be there tonight!
