7 Cool Things We Saw at January's Third Friday

The first round of Third Friday exhibitions in 2015 is setting the bar high for the rest of the year. It was a pretty quiet evening on the streets, but most of the galleries were filled with work and people to view it. Most of these exhibitions will be around for February's First Friday, so don't miss out. We're sure that with the cold beginning to dissipate, it'll be a busy year on Roosevelt Row. Here are some of our favorites.
Patricia Sannit's Ceramic Installation at Halt Gallery
Sannit's ceramic installation in "Collected Echoes" is reminiscent of an archaeological dig. It meanders like a river, guiding the viewer through the shipping container as if it is presenting a history. The work speaks of layers in terms of time and landscape and functions as a visual storytelling. Sannit crafts and places these objects carefully, but they feel as if they're artifacts displayed exactly how they were found. "Collected Echoes" will be on view until February 8, 2015.

Romantic Aberration by Rembrandt Quiballo at Capture 12
Rembrandt Quiballo's Romantic Aberration
This month, Capture 12 is presenting Quiballo's "Mass Mediation" series. The works are "an attempt to reconcile" our transition from analog to digital. Quiballo takes various images from the media and transforms them into static images that have a presence. The newly analog images, however, continue to feel as if they're digital. They're trapped in this state of limbo between the real and the virtual. The intimacy of Romantic Aberration is distorted to the point where we can barely even recognize it, becoming a monstrosity.
