Jeffrey Cheung’s first European solo exhibition, ‘Together’ opens at Andenken Gallery in Amsterdam on Friday September 28th, 2018
Last time I saw Scott, we were playing ping pong at The Marcy Project in Brooklyn. Sadly for me, he beat me in a best of 7. It still stings a bit. I mention it here as a form of therapy I think. Anyway, I’m catching up with him now as his two person show with Mary Iverson called ‘Correspondence’ has just opened at Andenken in Amsterdam on November 11th.

Exhibition Review by Hyland Mather
This show New Translations, by Scott Ablrecht (instagram @scottyfivealive) has been getting lots of attention online, and why not… a) It’s at Shepard’s gallery, duh, and b) this new work from Scotty is quite freaking stellar.
I’ve known Hyland Mather (thelostobject) for many years and we’ve done quite a large number of creative projects together. Beyond the fact that I have always loved Hyland’s, Andenken Gallery, and I admire his own creating styles as an artist, I can also say with confidence that we are good friends. As part of the ongoing project, The Jaunt, I sent Hyland off to Haifa, Israel. Tonight an exhibition to showcase the Jaunt Forma sculptures that Hyland made in honor of that trip will be on display at the famed Amsterdam local The Garage . This is the one time that all of these sculptures will be on display before they ship out to their new homes for the collectors who supported the trip. I caught up with Hyland in advance of the show to talk a bit about this and a bit about that.
I first encountered Drew Leshko’s work at SCOPE Art Fair in Miami…two maybe three winters ago. Steadily and without fail, I’ve become a bigger and bigger fan of his 1:12 classic dollhouse scale models of gritty urban landscapes and worn travel vehicles.
On Friday October 28th, Andenken and Makerversity Amsterdam are hosting Drew’s first solo exhibition in Europe ‘Heaven is Whenever’ . I caught up with Drew in advance of the show.
Tattooed Mom, or as it is affectionately known to Philly locals, ‘TMoms’, is a place to eat, a place to drink, and a place to meet. You might think to call it a bar and a restaurant…but it’s actually not, it’s more of a Temporary Autonomous Zone, that just so happens to be fairly permanent. Check it out.
‘Direction / Instruction’ is a traveling group exhibition boasting an outstanding lineup of artists.
Having already enjoyed successful stops in Denver at Svperordinary and at CAVE Gallery, Venice Beach, Cali, ‘Direction / Instruction’ is currently on expo thru September 17th at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia.
Graphic Surgery has been honing their brand of minimalism for quite some time now. Their bold, simple, and striking marks in abandoned spaces and meticulously crafted work for galleries are increasingly drawing appreciation from patrons and peers.
Recently I sent over a few questions, half dozen to be exact. GS is a duo of Dutchies, Erris Huigens, and Gysbert Zijlstra. I sent each the questions independently, and asked them to answer them ‘blindly’ ..a kind of The Dating Game , questionaire, just to see how congruent is the party line. Turns out…pretty much on target.
