This Friday: Noal, Teal, Anthony, Tugboat, Son Ambulance, MLGI, probably more
Lots of good things to do this Friday night.
Teal & Nolan are two of my favorite local artists. Here's an old painting of Nolan's, called "Samson and the Sabine Children." It's i think from 06.
All the images that I have of Teal's work are in my head.
The Tugboat/Artists Studios complex above Gomez will have its second First Friday night. The show at Tugboat is going to be Gary Rattigan: Things Go Wrong Quite Often
I think that show is all abstract paintings, apparently. This may or may not be one of them:
The complex includes a lot of studios & shops, which will all have open studios or events as well. Anthony Hawley has a studio there & will be showing a new set of work. Here's a message from him:
Please join us this Friday, May 2, from 6-10pm

Entrances to second floor on O St. next to Bodega's and on 14th st next to Jake Smoke's shop (elevator entrance near Duffy's).
Please look for us in studio #3
Here is one of Anthony's pieces from a series of minimalist text-image works on paper. It's called "Passing Beneath These Coordinates Everyone is a Pile of Glass," which is also what the tiny line of text says:
So go to the Tug-plex & then head down to Chatterbox. Do it. Do it.
