Opening This Weekend! (4/30-5/2)

Opening time again. I wasn't even going to mention it, 'cus it seemed so obvious, but Art Chicago and NEXT are this weekend. If you didn't know that by now, well, I don't know, there is a glitch in the communication. I don't know how many of you care, or are planning on going, but be sure you get in for free. There are a million ways, if you don't have one, drop me a line. Also, I didn't list every gallery in River North and West Loop that will be open Saturday, I only listed the ones that were having actual "openings" (ie the first reception for a show). You can see a full list of participants on Chicago Gallery News' website. Aside from those, there are still a shit-ton of openings. If you don't go out a see art this weekend (but you are reading this and will be in Chicago), that is just fucking lame. Sorry to berate those who take offense, but seriously. Ok, on to the list:
