Receptions, Shows and Openings:
july 2005

This is a fun thing to do on a Friday Night. We will give you a map. You can walk to the local galleries and see the new Art. Also, Ale Mary's is a fun pit stop on our corner...

We work pretty hard to get these shows together, but please consider the artist. These four local women have created some very beautiful paintings. Four different styles, all of it very artfully done. Cathy Darchicourt, Jennifer Wheatley, Maria Cavacos and Ferrell Campbell. It would mean a lot to them if you could stop by to take a look at their work. Also, it would make the Gallery owners happy to get one more crowd together for some laughs and a good chat. (We will close for the month of August, so this is the last big party for a while).You already know that Fells Point is a fun part of town and it's easy to park near us for the ART LOOP.

Please join us for some snacks and a glass of wine. You don't have to buy anything - if you just show up, it will be a success! Friday July 1st, 5pm-10pm.

ECCENTRIC SPACE - installations by 7 Philadelphia-based artists Curated by Tadashi Moriyama
July 1st - Aug 17th 2005

Opening: July 1st, First Friday, 6-11p.m.
Location: MBNstudios Cafe Gallery, 2F / 725 N. 4th Street (4th+brown st)

Artists: Paul Hamanaka - Daisuke Hatori - Leslie Mutchler - Kenya Nakazawa - Natasha Pestich - Daniel Tague - Wendy Wolf

Eccentric Spaces features diverse artistic strategies that examine the unconventional representations. Included are large scale meditative paintings by Daisuke Hatori, installation of video and repetitive lithograph prints on paper by Wendy Wolf, and Natasha Pestich's Resident Aliens is a set of Canadian suits provoked by her shift in vernaculars.

Paul Hamanaka's work interplays between the real and the fictional by shadow presentations. Kenya Nakazawa video projection on the floor submerges viewers into the peculiar digital space. Leslie Mutchler creates the flimsy landscape by elevated ground of record. Daniel Tague presents loops of five-minute musical performance throughout the opening night.

We hope to see you all on Friday! Thank you for your time and support.
