The Fresh Up Club
Closes February 15, 2005

The sisterly bond between the artists in the current exhibition is, if not strictly, then largely genetic rather than gendered; the premise of the show describes the relationships between the artists on the walls and their friends more than it indicates a thematic criteria for inclusion. That said, with the exception of one large quite beautiful drawing, most of the works are hand-holding size. And appropriately, many of the works feature or indicate hands—sorting, holding, drumming, and drawing—as their subject matter. Other themes include sex and family—again, appropriately. All in all, it is nice to see a pendant show to "Brothers"; the works grew on me the longer I stayed.
