Last Friday, I went to a fantastic opening. It was a ton of new work by Jan Baltzell at Schmidt Dean's new gallery location on Chestnut. The opening was packed and the work was exceptional. I have always looked to Jan (who was briefly a critic of mine) for complex and inventive color and compositional choices. The new space is very nice too, its a large square room on an upper floor with big, black beams on the ceiling which provided a nice contrast to the show. I'm looking forward to going back between now and May 19th to really take an extended look at some of the pieces.
