On a weekend packed full of great shows, the Carmichael Gallery opening reception was one of AM’s first stops. Fresh off moderating the successfulÂ Bonham’s Contemporary Street panel, up next for Carmichael was the “Pour Me Some Smoke” group show which offered a wide variety of contemporary flavors. The changling lineup with works fromÂ Case, Charming Baker, Ian Strawn, Guy Denning, and TRXTR had the attendees switching gears all night.Â As usual, Carmichael Gallery offered a fresh contemporary perspective for everyone who is looking for something off the beaten trail.
The enemy of the art world “Mr. Customs” reared it’s ugly head again… Charming Baker’s work ran into a little hiccup with the customs department and his works were held up before the opening. But Seth Carmichael called in a few last minute favors to get super high quality 1/1 Giclees made of Charming’s canvases just in time for the show. Never worriers, Charming and the Carmichael’s ran into us at the Thinkspace/Audrey Kawasaki opening and let us know that the paintings cleared customs safely and got to the gallery. As you can see from the pictures he sent us the next day, Charming was ecstatic that everything turned out “swimmingly”. Thanks to Charming for providing us with the pictures of the works thatÂ everyone missed on opening night!
