This weekend is the big fuck all weekend when every gallery in the city opens its doors with new shows and a new season. Art districts will surge with freshly minted art students and seasoned art connoisseurs alike and Grolsch will be consumed by the kiloliter and no one will actually see much art but that’s okay, they’ll come back on Monday if they really care.

What matters here is that there are too many galleries to list, and almost too many good ones to list too, so I’ll put down only the ones I would see if I weren’t spending the whole weekend at the Flat Iron Arts Building as part of their Fall Smartshow. Never mind the creepy drunks on the splash page, come by and check out my own work or chat about art with me, but don’t tell me what I’m missing on the outside.
