Ephameron @ Believe Inn

From Antwerp and beyond and with prints and drawings and tape comes the very prodigious Eva Cardon, aka Ephameron. Her new show titled Letting Go will be showing this month at Believe Inn, but also keep an eye out for the Moneybags project (a shared pet of Stan Chrisholm, who was recently reviewed here for the Built show in St.  Louis).

Opening reception this Saturday, August 29th from 6:00 – 10:00 PM @ Believe Inn, 2043 N Winchester.

No More Perfect Moments @ Scott Projects

Speaking of Brad Troemel, and speaking of apartment galleries too,  two Maryland artists will be showing at Brad Troemel’s Scott Projects apartment gallery. With photos and video and paintings, No More Perfect Moments will see Andrew Laumann and Justin Kelly tackling cultural rot and personal banality and other Nathan Williams-y themes.

Opening reception this Saturday, August 29th from 6:00 – 10:00 PM @ Scott Projects,1542 N Milwaukee, Apartment #3.

Julia Hechtman @ Dan Devening Projects + Editions

Sunday brings cropped up nature photos from Julia Hechtman at Dan Devening’s space. The show is titled Irrationalism and will include some new photos which look to trade clever irony for compositional carpendry on an unplaced mystery safari.

Opening reception this Sunday, August 30th, from 4:00 – 7:00 PM @ Dan Devening Projects + Editions, 3039 W Carroll.
