I haven't had a chance to see the exhibit fully set up and it's closing this week! So i thought i'd organize a last minute field trip, how does this Wednesday the 18th at 2:30pm sound? We meet up at the gallery, stumble around, go for a drink or four, then stumble home for dinner. I have to work at 5:00pm so i'll have to leave by 4:30. Hope to see you there.
