CAID opening

Despite the snowy weather and superbowl festivities, the CAID opening last night was well attended. Another themed group show for CAID, but still an interesting collection of work. Forgive me for only knowing a few of the artists' names - sometimes the detroitarts reporter takes pics and then forgets to look at the names...but then again...the pics are supposed to be only a tease to make you go to see the show in person!

Was at the CAID
open tonight which was good. Some of the work really grabbed me and I appreciated the open space given.
Mally-Macks paintings I had seen before which was sort of a bummer.
The show in general still seemed to lack something vital which I cannot put my finger on..?

To much judgement?

The installation by Cooper and beautiful works by Catherine Peet
were amongst my favorites.

Baseball card works were very clever.. and potentially very beautiful as well as good concept. Look forward to seeing more of the artists work.

I didn't get to the opening -was snowing too hard out where I live - so was glad to read about it!

Enjoyed your work as well Leslie.
The bone work had a great placement
and lended the sensation of slow inner-growth.. The larger work upstairs which I cannot remember the name of, was also strong. Nice to see all of that color under the white.
