Lauren Gregory and Carly Silverman @ Zrobili

I like Lauren Gregory‘s fucked up paintings on fake fur or hair, but I don’t think I’ve seen anything from this year’s production. Definitely a painter who with plenty of surprises left though – I’ll expect one of those. Like Gregory, Carly Silverman is also a mostly figurative painter doing the MFA program at the School of the Art Institute. The show of both artists’ work opens Friday, August 20th from 6-9PM @ Zrobili, 2649 ½ N Spaulding Ave, 2N.

Minneapolis Justin Thomas Schaefer will open a short-run show this weekend called Practice Makes Purpose at Monument 2. Not too much on the web apart from a cool installation show at Midway, so we’ll see what he does with the space on Point. Opens Saturday, August 21st from 6-10PM @ Monument 2, 2007 N Point S.
