Since I can’t rightly review a show I curated myself, I offer you Aviary Gallery’s press release and images from the show:
It’s that time of year again, time for the annual sale at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston! The School Sale is great because it places the work of first year art students right next to the work of now famous alumni, all on view for potential buyers. The Sale is a commotion of fancy collectors, hopeful art students, walls crammed with art, and bins overflowing with unframed pieces. It’s a lot of fun. The Sale with be going on through Sunday Nov 24th, so be sure to stop buy and pick up some great.

You might know Karl Stevens from his show in the Hallway Gallery last month, or from his weekly comic that ran in the dearly departed Phoenix. For his show in the Hallway Gallery he plastered both gallery walls with the originals from dozens of his comic pages. I’ve been a fan of Stevens’ work ever since I ran into him at the Massachusetts Independent Comic Expo (MICE) a number of years back. His comic work features witty and cynical wordplay combined with impeccably cross-hatched pen and ink drawings.
