And One More Thing...

If you're out and about this Saturday, you'll have plenty of ways to see some great art. We covered all that here, but who says we can't mention it again?

Head over to Artlog and get a ticket to ride the WGA Tour Bus all over Williamsburg this Saturday night, as we show off our Dirty Little Secrets. Tours are departing from various locations and each group offers a great way to see what the Williamsburg art world has to offer. Buses will be leaving at 6:00pm from Armory Pier 94 downstairs, 6:30 and 7:30 from Bridge Art Fair, 8:00pm from Armory Pier 94 downstairs. We'll also be trying to have some people around the L lines to help out with directions, in case you're caught up in the economic crisis. But whatever you do, don't forget to sign up for one of the afterparties. After all our working getting this ready we're gonna be ready to have some fun, and you won't want to miss out!

Participating galleries will be marked by a red light so you'll know where to go. Help us show off the Dirty Little Secrets of Williamsburg and have some Armory-based fun all night long. We'll see you here!

And when I say hot, I mean... HOT!

Rachel Beach, our art star's solo show, Towers & Portals, opens with a Sneak Preview on Friday, March 6th and a Grand Opening on Saturday, March 7th. She is such a perfectionist that she's making her own lighting scheme. Where's the team of white mice and pumpkin coach to sweep her away?

We adore Rachel as a person and even more as an artist. These shots of her newest pieces should give you a great idea why.

Rachel's sculpture plays with space in a way that photos cannot totally capture. We know the dimensions of our gallery almost by heart and she still has us doing double takes. If you were here for her last show, you know how amazing her stuff is. If you weren't here, for Heaven's sake, don't miss out twice in a row!

Rachel asked us to save a few surprises, so keep in mind that we're deliberately avoiding some pieces in these shots... You'll be pleased that we did when you see them for the first time. Some things really are best witnessed in person.

Be here this Friday and Saturday for the Sneak Preview and Opening Night of Towers & Portals! And RSVP now for the March 13th Artist's Dinner with Rachel herself! Go ask your fairy godmother, she'll back us up.
