If you haven’t been to the new upstart, Seventy Seven Gallery, then you should go tonight for the Nick Morris show. They are located just east of I-35 on 6th St. on the ground floor of some fancy new building.
One upping Domy Book’s destination of ‘Just East’ of 35, Seventy Seven Gallery, is just shy of the Interstate‘s asphalt, so close to the action in fact that while enjoying the night air outside ‘77’, a full scale crack bust went down directly across the street from us. It was by far the best performance piece that I had ever seen at an art show. It included a Crack Dealer, several crack heads, and clown car full of cops, well, it was actually a Honda Odyssey Mini Van with blacked out windows that screeched to a halt in between us and the open air market, from which a dozen or so cops spilled out of and started zip tying the felonious like effing Spiderman. It was an artistic! start to the new space. Remember that just east of I-35 is the essential face of the East Austin that the majority of Austinites and Church goers think of whenever its mentioned, so be glad that the Seventy Seven Gallery hopes to become the apple in the eye of said face while stepping up to fill the shoes of beloved but lost Gallery Lombardi as the new enthusiastic Graff flavored gallery of Austin. Kudos. See you tonight.
