Now that the havoc of this past month has abated, we can catch up on some items of note (and there’s a reward print for whoever first makes the intended connection between the two pictures).

Abe’s Retrospective

View-of-Landscape-Outside-Florence-in-Room-With-Bookcase

For once, we’re actually on top of things. Today was all about Abelardo Morell in Chicago, and it was a good day for that: not a lot else going on downtown except for his Art Institute opening, the weather held for his well-attended talk, and his reception at Stephen Daiter.

The Daiter show continues for two months, and the ‘Tute’s for three, but why wait until the last week of either? That’s  the behavior of reviewers in the daily papers (if, indeed, both of them still cover work by “photographers”). Hie thee.
