Before I headed out to the reading of Inheritance by Natalie Danford, I stopped in the Westside Gallery for the opening reception of Dreamscapes, a show curated by Richard Brooks. The exhibit features the work of three current students, James Farias, Toby Klinger, and Michaela Murphy. It runs till February 10th.

The reception started off pretty quietly, so I had ample access to view all the works. I actually liked the show quite a bit, especially the work of Toby Klinger. The illustrative works on clayboard boxes were really seductive in their detailed neo-surrealist style.

My only reservation about the show was the GIANT empty spot on one of the walls. In such an intimate venue, the vaccancy was actually really distracting.
