No nudes!!! I couldn't see the nudes at Gallery5! They had a line that went all the way down the block. I 've since heard that they had EIGHT THOUSAND people come to that opening! Can that be right???
The weather was nice and warm, and there were tons of people hitting the galleries on Broad Street, many many more so than at the galleries on Main Street, which still had good crowds - but the Broad Street galleries were packed.
There is a huge art audience here, maybe not many buyers, but a very big and interested audience, and unfortunately most of what was available to see on Broad Street was crap! I'm shocked at how many people come out to look at bad stuff. It is exciting.
We need to show more and better stuff.
Why was 1708 Gallery closed? UPDATE: They were open, just had the windows blacked out. Thanks, Nate!
