Peabe @ A.Okay Official: The Return of Dr. Aquard
A quick view of the interior.
The show/gallery was near the back, in an adjoining space.
Walking around looking at the paintings, I wondered where Bryan was. Glancing out the window, I spotted him immediately.
A few pieces – the center one I recognize from the Hello My Name is Chicago show.
A few more paintings. Sadly, the piece with the moped is not for sale.
A cool piece that was done right on the gallery wall. I love how it crosses over onto the vent/floor.
A few more closeups.
Folks milling about, checking out the artwork and the artist statement.
Portrait of the Artist as a Young (Aquard) Man. Bryan was on his way through the gallery area, hoping to hide out in back for a while. Along the way, he got accosted for some photos, and ended up talking to a ton of folks.
By the time we left, more and more people were showing up. I know Bryan was pretty tired from the past two days (finishing up pieces and setting up the gallery space). When I asked how he was doing, he mentioned he was doing well… but was looking forward to sleep.
His show runs for a while, so if you’re up near A.Okay Official in Lincoln Park… swing on by and take a peek.
