Angels in the Angles: Opening Night at the Gallery Atsui

Angels in the Angles Cover

I went down to the Gallery Atsui last night to check out the opening for the Angels in the Angles exhibition of concrete poetry.  It’s been guest curated by my friend Steve Calvert and he’s done a great job conceptualizing and showcasing the work of Donato Mancini, Christian Bok and Marina Roy.

When I arrived at the Gallery I was impressed to see so many people crowded into the two rooms and spilling out the back door into the parking lot.  A warm and convivial crowd, as they say.  I met some cool people and made new friends and it was a really refreshing atmosphere.  I think that the show will be a huge success.

Angels in the AnglesX08The exhibition runs until the beginning of November so there’s lots of time to check it out.

Steve will be haunting the gallery space on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 1-5 if you want to drop by for some added insight into the show and the artists’ other works.

For more information about the ridiculously strong conceptualization for this show please check out Steve’s intense “introduction” to the show on the Mechanical Brides website.  Also includes artist bios and info on purchasing prints.

Books on the Radio will be rocking an interview with Steve in the next week or so for broadcast on CJSF 90.1 FM.
