Post-Opening Chatter

So the opening was last night and after a worrisome couple of weeks and some delays and other hiccups I must say it came together well.  If you missed it yesterday you can still stop by the space at 326 S. Commerce (north of Waterman) until December 10th.  Our hours are Thursday 4 pm to 7 pm, Friday 4 pm to 9 pm, and Saturday 12 pm to 5 pm.

But anyway, a number of people asked me about the music that I had on the stereo so I thought I'd post the track listing and maybe link to the bands site, or amazon, or whatever.  So that's what's below (band name first with a link to their webpage if available, track title second with links mostly to amazon).

Opening Friday!

Okay everybody, the next show is this Final Friday, which would be the day after Thanksgiving.  So if you're in need of some time away from the family come out to the gallery crawl, see some art, have some cheese, drink some drink, and mingle with some people that don't share your genetics.  We'll be serving light refreshments at the Shift Space this month, including Starbucks coffee.

On the music side of things, I had been thinking of having a selection of music by the group Labradford, but I'm a bit afraid that might be a little too slow for an opening, so I'll have to see what I can come up with.

Da' Body

No, we're not talking about good ol' Jesse.

Concerns surrounding the human body reach into many areas of society, from the biological sciences, to industrial design, to theology, to politics, and so on.  It is in this context that the third exhibition of the WSU Shift Space, titled The Body as Figure, Self, Culture, takes a varied look at issues of body confronted in our daily lives. The work of the following WSU students and faculty will be featured:  Ted Adler, Amanda Dickson, Aaron Englund, Debi Kaufman, Jamie O’Leary, Cynthia Martinez, Paul McKee, Matthew Miller, Jennie Mosher, Dagan Sherman, Ryan Soper, and Kevin Ware.

A reception will be held on Final Friday, November 25, 2005 from 6 to 10 p.m.  The exhibition will continue to run through December 10, 2005.  Hours are 4 to 7 p.m. Thursdays, 4 to 9 p.m. Fridays, and 12 to 5 p.m. Saturdays.

Last Chance!

Okay, so the photos are up (in order too!), and this weekend is the last chance to see the exhibition at the Fourth National.  So come down, check things out, sign the guest book, you know how it works.

Friday: 4pm-9pm

Saturday: noon-5pm

Sixth P, Second E

Okay, so I got some of the pictures uploaded and I think I know why they aren't in the same order that I thought they would be in, but I don't feel like fixing it right now so I'll get to it later.  Anyway, what you see are some pictures from when we were still setting up as well as a few color shots from the opening.  I'll post some better images of the work as soon as I get the chance to do it, but for now enjoy what has been made available (or you could always just go down and check out the show in person).

Fifth P, Second E

So the opening went pretty well, down a little in a attendance from the first show, but that was to be expected given our new location.  The space looks really nice though; if you didn't make it to the opening you should still stop by and check everything out, we'll be open again this Friday from 4pm until 9pm if you're looking for something to do this weekend; it'd be a good thing to do on a date, or if you're just looking for something to do before hitting the bars downtown.

I'll post some pictures from the show as soon as I get them downloaded (I've been having connection issues).
