OUT AND ABOUT IN THE GALLERIES
with Todd Camplin  

When I was out and about a few weekends ago, I found myself at a few lightly attended openings.
The Reading Room had felt full, but the space is pretty small. The gallery features the strangely odd,
sometime humorous postcard project of Jennie Ottinger. I wish I would have brought a stamp to trade
with her. Cohn Drennan Contemporary had some very interesting conceptual artists immersed into new
media and data collecting. For a moment I thought I might have stepped into Central Trak. Sophia Le
Fraga had edited some film stills with subtitles and created a kind of found poetry.

Le Fraga’s use of the familiar and pulling text out of context then collaging it with other film stills
captures much of the Conceptual art spirit. I was extremely engaged by her poems/art images.
Liliana Bloch Gallery’s space hadn't revved up their attendance either, but in their defense, I
did come by pretty early. I hope more people dropped by after I left, because the sculptures
of Ryan Goolsby would be well worth the time to see in person.
