1275 Minnesota St / Gallery 201

Opening reception Saturday, December 2nd | 6-8pm

An exhibit of signs and words, and words on signs… observations on art writing and art talking, and talking about art differently than how we write about art. Why? Is there a reason we write (or attempt to write) so damn fancy when we often talk about art so crudely and / or cruelly? Is one more real? Has one been validated?
