No music tonight at Space 1026, unless you count the sound of Arctic winds whistling through uninsulated windows.
The Maple Rabbit, Lillie Ruth Bussey and Lovers show has been moved to an as-yet-undisclosed location in West Philadelphia. You could try going to that, or you could stay home and practice playing the washboard in front of the TV.

Never Nothing Photoblog

Clint started a new Photo blog with some friends around the globe. He says:

This is a new photoblog i am starting with my boy Pete in Australia and Mike in San Fran. I see it as a reminder of 2 points:
1) My friends are amazing and do amazing things.
2) There are still beautiful things in this world… Even when a lot of things are trying to prove otherwise.
I hope you like it.
if not… that’s cool.
Doesn’t matter.

already has some rad stuff up… and will keep getting better. stop by at:

Sketchy Stash

AHN|VHS is pleased to present an exhibition of sketch books by Bill McRight.

Primarily a printmaker working in linoleum block and silkscreen, McRight’s work is known for its extreme intricacy and for his bold, often absurd figures. These sketchbooks are McRight’s place for character and concept development, as well as impulsive composition. The figures in his books are drawn and redrawn with altered and increasingly exaggerated gestures and features, interspersed with pages of striking painterly abstraction and bursts of free associative text or overheard phrases. There seems to be a narrative at work, although the books leave no conclusion but to continue to another page. It is rare that McRight takes a figure directly from one of these books for use in a print; these forms are composed on impulse and are made to retain that immediacy. This looseness and experimentation with material and gesture is a surprising contrast to McRight’s rigid sculpting of forms in his prints and lino cuts in particular.

This is the first exhibition of the artist’s books since his 2005 MFA thesis exhibition at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

AHN|VHS will produce a limited edition reproduction of one of these sketch books concurrent with the exhibition.

Bill McRight is a printmaker working primarily in silkscreen and linoleum or wood block. In 2005 he received an MFA from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. His prints have been published by Cannonball Press. He lives in Philadelphia and is a current member of Space 1026.

Chris Johanson at Davidson College

Brad Thomas runs the Van Every/ Smith galleries down there at Davidson College in North Carolina… This time around he has brought Chris Johanson to Davidson and they are having an opening this Thursday, March 12 at 7pm. One part of this show that sounds extra-special is a collaboration between Chris and members of the Art Works 945 program at Urban Ministries in Charlotte.

Also coming up in that neck of the woods, on Sunday, the 15th AJW, Sweatheart, Narwhals of Sound, Coma League and Radio Taiwan are playing at the Saturday Skateboards warehouse… and it’s only $5.

So if you are South of the Mason Dixon line. Go to Davidson and Charlotte this weekend… and If you are in Philly and plan on going, hook me up with a ride!

The kids are alright!

I got an email from Timothy Soper, he teaches art at Kings Highway elementary school in Westport, Connecticut. He had his 4th grade classes do a project about relief printmaking. Tim showed his classes some of my prints and told them the project was about using line to make monsters. I just got some pictures of some of their prints… watch out world when kids that are 8 are making prints that rule this hard we are all in trouble!
