Hamlett Dobbins and Erica Svec

Two of my friends have openings tomorrow night.  If by some miracle of time and space I could head up to New York to see Erica Svec's show of recent paintings at Larissa Goldston and then down to Memphis to see Hamlett Dobbins's new work at David Lusk Gallery I most certainly would.  This is work that excites me and makes me want to RUN to the studio to make paintings.
