50/50 Show at Smartspace

When: Fri., May 20 2011

Bring 50 bucks to Smartspace tonight and go home with original artwork from one of 50 local artists. Yes, the popular 50/50 Show returns as part of the monthly Third Friday celebration at the 78th Street Studios. (The Studios, by the way, are an artful collection of work and display space nestled inside the former American Greetings digs in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood.) Among the respected artists represented at tonight's show: Karl Anderson, Rich Cihlar, Mallorie Freeman, Derek Hess, Bob Peck, William Rupnik, and many more, in a one-night-only exhibition curated by Martin Geramita, Cleveland art-scene mainstay and former owner of 1300 Gallery, where the 50/50 Show was always a big draw. Meantime, DJ Bradley P will be spinning tunes, and many of the building's other galleries will be holding openings and artist receptions. Find it all from 5 to 9 p.m. at 1305 West 78th St. For more information, check out the 50/50 Show page on Facebook or go to — Elaine T. Cicora
