I walked around Art Explosion’s open studios this afternoon and loved either the abstract or  realist work.  I suppose the reason why is simple: one reflects the fractured, speeded up world we live in; the other offers something to hold onto.

At any rate, it is worth making a visit. If you have a favorite, let me know. Mine was probably the work by I-Chin Liao, a young immigrant from Taiwan and some work by William Durham Reed, a young  artist from Portland who has been in the city for about eight months. But there were many others I liked and some are in the slideshow.

The studios at 2435 17th Street and 744 Alabama will be open on Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m.
