Launched in the space formerly occupied by the Miller Weitzel Gallery, Wall Eye has quickly established itself on the scene with a busy schedule of shows featuring terrific contributors, among them painter Ken Nevadomi and woodcut printmaker Claudio Orso-Giacone. Its founders — five artists and two aficionados — have kept the emphasis off themselves, reaching out instead to the people whose work they admire. They've also presented lectures, like one recent talk by a local curator on the works of 16 local artists on the rise. It's how a gallery can be more than just stuff to look at; it can be a conversation starter unto itself.
