Chicago Gallery Snack Report: Friday, January 21, 2011

The galvanized bucket o' beer sat in the gallery's small kitchen.  We arrived midway through the reception, the place was packed, but there was still a healthy supply of Miller High Life, as well as some cans of La Croix mineral water or something.  Around closing time some guys came in with a case of Ice House and added it to the tub.  I had one or two High Lifes and one of the Ice Houses the gentlemen brought by, and then it was off to bed.  This was the last opening at Swimming Pool's current space.  Look for one upcoming exhibition in a West Loop space, currently Liz Nielsen's studio, before she and Carolina Wheat pull up stakes for New York.  Best of luck, ladies!
