hit list








Hit List is a look back at some of the most memorable exhibitions in 1305 Gallery's 4 years of operation, celebrating the 4th anniversary of shows on April 24th, 2009. In the spirit of the exhibition Nutshell: a Recent History of 1305 Gallery, the gallery will host work and publicity from 12 shows spanning 2005-2009.

Much of the work comes from the gallery's collection and will be for sale, while some work comes from my personal collection and will be on display to view only. Hit List puts works of different media, makers, and perspectives in one room not to present the work as a group, but as different contributing factions making up the aesthetic of 1305. Guests attending the opening reception will help us celebrate 4 years of shows and counting, looking back at the artists, work, and press that have made the gallery what it is today.

If you can't make it to the opening don't forget that you can stop in on your lunch hour or afternoon out between 11 and 3, Tuesday through Saturday!

Thanks for 4 years, here's to 4 more, and see you all soon!
