Must see in Milwaukee...

Busy night tonight... off to see as much work as possible. Spring Gallery Night in Milwaukee is always one of the best art events in town. There are many openings tonight but the one not to miss is the 2008 MARNmentors Show Two at Hotcakes Gallery.
Show Opens tonight from 6-9pm and runs April 18 - May 04. Gallery is open TH-SU 12-5PM

I am really excited to see my good friend Mel Trittin's work at Hotcakes Gallery. Most of you probably know her as cigarettesandpurity She will be showing her new series "Promised Land." From Mel's statement about the work...
I’m interested in what I perceive as contradictions.

When I learned of a paintball park called Promised Land, which advertised itself as “America’s best Christian paintball park,” my upbringing by a pacifist minister compelled me to investigate.

It is a great series of work and it is Mel's first Milwaukee exhibition, I look forward to it!
