My first stop was Hemphill Gallery – I went there to write a short review for ARTnews on Hiroshi Sugimoto. Instead, Kendall Messick, the ‘other’ exhibiting artist at Hemphill convinced me, without even trying, that his show was the one to review. It is called ‘The Projectionist.’ That’ll be out in January…

Messick’s “Homage to Sugimoto”

Here are some of the Sugimoto film screen photos and a couple of celebrities…

And then on to The Randall Scott Gallery … Chris Anthony: I Am The Most Normal Person I Know. It was Photo Week in DC. Who knew?

And then, after that… I went to Transformer to see Nilay Lawson’s Show. I LOVED that she hand-painted all the floor tiles! For text-lovin’ artists, this show is a must-see.

Yes they are. Bronzed Chicken Bones. Yup.
