Trew Schriefer and Joanna Goss @ ebersmoore
This month ebersmoore opens double solos from Trew Schriefer and Joanna Goss. When I saw Trew’s work last a few years ago, it was tiny acrylic on wood topographic cute abstractions. Grad school must have enlarged his ambitions and his surfaces and sent some of that tight and fun abstraction energy Goss’ way. Show opens (opened) Friday, May 28th from 6-9PM @ebersmoore, 213 N Morgan St, 3C.
Sebastian Vallejo @ Lloyd Dobler Gallery
Sebastian Vallejo presents some retro painting styles before they were common on t-shirts and corporate cafeteria panel art, complete I’m sure with big prismatic sprays, textured paint, and glitter. Check out the opening Friday, May 28th from 6-10PM @ Lloyd Dobler Gallery, 1545 W Division St, 2nd Floor.

UNCOVER, DISCOVER, DISCARD @ Golden Age
Normally describing a piece of art as sentimental is a good polite alternative for calling it fucking awful, but artists Eric Yahnker, McIntyre Parker, Emilie Halpern, Michael G. Bauer, and Sidonie Loiseleux take the plunge into sentimentality and emotional content in artwork. Opening reception Saturday, May 29th from 6-9PM @ Golden Age, 119 N Peoria St.
