There are several exhibitions opening tonight. At Grey Gallery and Lounge, painter Brad Biancardi has his first solo exhibition since leaving Seattle for Chicago in 2007. A fellow 2005 alumnus of the UW MFA program, Brad makes bold, colorful paintings that explore structure, symmetry, and his personal relationship to the objects in his environment. I’m very excited to see his new work.
Next door at Vermillion, local artist Troy Gua, best known for his double portraits of pop culture figures, has an exhibition of new work inspired by “online social networking and the human desire for validation.”
At the Seattle University Hedreen Gallery, the TM Sisters are giving a free performance related to the exhibition Void Sweated Spark, part of a year-long investigation of the gallery’s dual function as a theater lobby.
Up at Cafe Racer in the U-district, a group of artists known as the Capitol Hill Watercolor Society presents Paranormal, an exhibition of works inspired by the mysterious and supernatural forces. More info on this show at Portable Shrines.
