Who Arted? #2

Overwhelmed by First Friday Gallery walks? Smaller galleries in the city have come up with a brillant idea called, originally enough, Second Saturdays complete with the usual late night wine and cheese receptions. Never one to shy away from trends, I went to the Indianapolis Art Center where I walked through a room tented in fabric scraps with tendrils of paper brushing backs and shoulders (dislike), scooted around tall wooden aliens with great taste in necklaces and marveled at an entire parking lot of trash compressed and neatly framed. The star of the night was Aak Langeek and his optical illusion busily crumbling paintings. A dapper Dutchman in tall riding boots, his huge works formed a cohesive collection that is rare for a first timer and they are at once soothing in pattern play and fascinating in their intricacy. See it until January.

On another note, El Sol has changed their food prep and I do not approve. Margs are still amazing thank god

William Rast jacket, Juicy thermal top, All Saints skirt, Barneys Co-Op boots, Fox's socks, he has a lot of really great rag ones I am always stealing
