Double Trouble : Friday Art Openings

This is the kind of weekend so packed full of great events it makes you wish you could defy the laws of time and space and be in two places at once. In particular, two incredible art openings at Subtext Gallery and Double Break make your Friday like a choose your own adventure book where you win no matter which page you flip to.

Subtext Gallery in Little Italy opens Homeroom, a group show guest curated by Christina Conway. She asked each of the participating artists to take an original artwork from their childhood and recreate it. An art table with drawing supplies will be in the courtyard area where you can design a postcard to take home or to mail to your favorite artist in the show. Gallery doors are open Friday from 6-10pm with Chubby’s food truck serving grub until 8pm.  

Over in Banker’s Hill, Double Break is hosting Double Breaks - a seriously stacked group show featuring the likes of Mark Mulroney and skateboarding legends Neil Blender and Ed Templeton (!!!). Curated by co-owner Louis M. Schmidt and LA-based artist Jay Howell, Double Breaks features a wide range of work from comics to fine art and a whole lot in between. Doors are open from 6-10pm with an after party next door at Tin Can Alehouse with bands hand-picked by artist Sean Stout. Personally, this show kind of gives me the chills.

Both shows run until December 11th, 2011. For gallery hours visit Subtext Gallery and Double Break.


Art in order of appearance: "Wanderer" by Audrey Kawasaki, "Just Booze" by Mark Mulroney.
