Whitespace opens a show of new work by Craig Dongoski. For Attack/Decay/Sustain/Release, the gallery says, "Dongoski created drawings over-drawings on a variety of substrates including wood, paper and printed materials. He also highlights works derived from his signatures, which he used in turn for producing graphic scores or non-conventional musical notation." We're not sure what that means, but it sounds pretty awesome. Expect a musical performance and video as part of the opening tonight. More details at Whitespace.


MINT Gallery is hosting a fundraiser to benefit clean water efforts in Nicaragua. Amelia Netto, Marcy Starz, and James O'Donnell and others will exhibit work and Chris Devoe will spin tunes. You can find out more about clean water and get more details about the event from Trashwater.


Mary OHoro, Fluxus

Spruill Gallery hosts an artist talk for Align, a group show that takes "The essence of drawing is the line exploring space" as a guiding mantra. The group of work assembled involves some surprising and diverse picks, including photographer Lucinda Bunnen, painter Rocio Rodriguez, and author Blake Butler. At noon, Barrett Feldman, Margaret Fletcher, Julia Hill, Jeffery Merritt, Mary O'Horo, Wynne Ragland, and Ashley Schick will discuss their work in the show. More details at Spruill.


Ponce is not a player, they just Crush a lot. Big puns aside, the trifecta of galleries near to Ponce are back with three new group exhibitions. Beep Beep is previewing an entire year of upcoming shows with a single show, Young Blood is getting futuristic, and Kibbee brings an unexpected three person show titled Grok. More details from Ponce Crush.


Gyun Hur's Spring Hiatus continues to be slowly installed at the Lenox Mall. What better day to check it than the shopping madness of Saturday? Get updates and details from Hur's blog.
