Our first stop was at Trust, formerly FUEL where artist Lee Catoro's show The RAW Collection was on display. Trust is a fabulous but difficult space for a single artist because of it's size and grandeur but Lee's work transformed the space amazingly well. A large and thought provoking collection of black and white images seemed to be really well received from what I heard.

On from Trust to ex Silicon'er Donna LoGrasso's show of paintings at the Rocket Cafe Hustle Gallery in Fishtown. I haven't seen Donna's work in person for many years and while her work is reminiscent of her ealier style the subject matter is not. Now her son Beau's influence is apparent and clowns and toys have replaced the steaminess of the past with bold energetic images which can't help make you smile and reminisce your own youth.

On from Donna's show to Silicon'er Katie Tackman's gallery GRAVY which continues to support local emerging photographers. Outside GRAVY an excellent blues band played which added to the charm of the evening.
Lastly we tried to get to Butch Cordoba's show at Ven and Vada on 2nd Street in Old City but we were too late but his Warhol inspired prints and really worth checking out.
