Openings-No Space on the sidewalks

I took in the evening's openings and overheard someone say there were 300 art openings in Chelsea Thursday night. I only went to about 3 and a half. And tonight I will go to one opening, which is for fellow artist friend Dario Robleto at D'Amelio Terras. I downloaded a picture of his recent work from the gallery's website, and took a picture of another piece and took a picture of Dario with the artist Taylor Davis.

The title of the piece downloaded from the gallery website is titled "A Beauty to Fatalism She Intends To Nurture," 2006; Homemade paper (pulp made from military photographs of soldiers and brides from various wars, ground eternal flower, cotton), colored paper, World War II carrier pigeon message capsules filled with battle field dirt from various wars, carnivous plants seeds, ressurection plants, excavated scarpel). Hair flowers braided by war widows, fragments of uniforms from various wars, mourning dress fabirc, silk, ribbon, typset, and poplar. 12 1/4 x 10 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches 2006.

Reads like liner notes.
