Hey, its Thursday and there are some good shows opening this weekend and you will find a list of the best of them below!

On Paper @ Gahlberg Gallery

With works on paper from Claire Sherman, Felix Malnig, Melissa Oresky (see below), and Robyn O’Neil (also at Tony Wight and recently reviewed here), this new exhibition at College of Dupage’s Gahlberg Gallery is so good I’d post it here even if I didn’t work there. If you’re in the suburbs, stop by. On Paper opens tonight, Thursday, October 15th from 5-8 PM @ the Gahlberg Gallery, 425 Fawell Blvd, in Glen Ellyn.

Melissa Oresky / Eric Lebofsky @ Western Exhibitions

Speaking of Melissa Oresky, her second opening in as many days is at Western Exhibitions, where she’ll be showing recent work in a show titled A Wilderness of Edges, with the second space opening Eric Lebofsky‘s Superfreaks, a collection of daily work began this August 10th. I stopped by Melissa’s studio earlier this month under the pretenses of interviewing her for this website, so keep an eye out for that too. Both shows open this Friday, October 16th from 5-8 PM.

I just stumbled on this one and won’t be able to make the opening, but the work looks too cool not to mention. C.J. Pyle’s  Kilroy’s Delight opens Friday, October 16th 5:30-8 PM @ Carl Hammer Gallery, 740 N. Wells Street.

Carroll Dunham @ He-Said-She-Said

Located just up the street from the backyard compound of The Suburban, Oak Park gallery He-Said-She-Said will be featuring artist Carroll Dunham‘s new drawing work this weekend. Here’s hoping its as funny and fucked up as the rest. Drawings opens this Saturday, October 17th from 6-8 PM @ He-Said-She-Said, 216 N. Harvey Ave in Oak Park.

Thats all for now. I might add to this list later tonight, since there are plenty of good shows this weekend, but those above are good enough for me.
