A recent First Friday visit to this teeny Grand Avenue gallery/music space made for an exciting and rather shocking surprise: There, among the mail-art and tempura portraits by amateurs, were two giant pieces by renowned local artist Janet DeBerge Lange. Part of a series of metal quilts she's working on, each panel is made from tin boxes, old signage, and enamel-plated containers arranged in bright, whimsical designs. The pair displayed at The Trunk Space looked from a distance as though Grandma had sewn them, but up close, they revealed layers of peeling paint and shiny, hard surfaces. We were wowed to find Lange's stuff on display at a space known for giving newbies a chance to shine, and it made us like this groovy gallery all the more.
