Some cool openings this weekend, and here are the one’s I’m trying to see. Check out the bigger lists here or here or anywhere, really.

Group Painting Show @ Ebersb9

Five shows in and already Ebersb9 is getting out of the apartment space and upgrading to something newer, bigger, but hopefully just as cozy.

The show opens this Friday, September 25th, 6-9 PM @ ebersb9, 1359 W. Chicago, apartment B9.
