the installation begins

I'm having a one-person show at this cool downtown Madison art gallery. One half of the show consists of 5 exhibits I've curated for my home-based gallery Subspace, and re-installed here in the Watrous gallery, with two of them being shown for the first time. For more about Subspace see: subspace gallery

The other half of the gallery is taken up with an assortment of 29 artists' accordions, all of which I have reviewed in this blog. This exhibition was cancelled for a couple of years due to COVID, so I'm really happy to see it installed with an opening reception on Friday, Feb., 17, 6:30-8:00pm with a talk by me at 7:00pm. Thanks to the Watrous staff for such a smooth installation!
