Hello again everyone. Sorry for the silence last week, I was on an adventure to California. It was great, except for the fact that someone out there got me sick, and now that I’m back with my nose to the grinding stone and a shoot to go to this weekend (both kinds), and I’ve got a wicked cold. Art’s been slimming down in preparation for the big Sept. 10th blowout, but there’s still a lot of great work up. Here’s my weekend picks…

1. Pamela Fraser at Golden Gallery
Golden Gallery, generally a crowd pleaser, is putting up another strong show. This round it consists of works on paper by artist Pamela Fraser. The works (from what I could find and discern) are all abstract, hyper-color pieces. Is “eye candy” a bad word in the art world?
Golden Gallery is located at 816 W. Newport Ave. Opening reception is Friday from 6-9pm.
2. Alumni at David Weinberg Gallery
I went to SAIC for grad school, but I don’t believe that gives me a complete bias for SAIC grad work. However, when I see good work from my fellow alums, I got to give it a shout. David Weinburg is putting on an exhibition of “recent” SAIC grad work, including that of Amy Mayfiled, Noelle Allen, Helen Maurene Cooper, & Michael Ratulowski. If you haven’t seen their work yet (which, if you’ve been in Chicago a while, is unlikely) make sure you stop by. If you already know their work, head over for a refresher on why they’re awesome.
