Strychnin Gallery “Midsummer Night’s Madness” – The Opening Night!

Now for the pictures of the opening night of “Midsummer Night’s Madness” on June 12th here at Strychnin Gallery in Berlin. It was a great night, with all the artists who attended getting great reactions to their work, and a great turn-out from the public. We always enjoy meeting those visitors who keep coming out to support us, as well as those who have only just discovered Strychnin Gallery or stumbled across the opening while enjoying their Friday night in Friedrichshain!

The visitors ebbed and flowed during the night, with some calling friends to join them at the opening!

It was a great night, and everyone who came to the gallery was impressed by the artwork, the way the show looked, and Elmer Presslee’s installation. Having so many of the artists on hand to talk to people about their work made it a night to remember.

We hope to see everyone again at the next show at Strychnin Gallery – “Nuclear Religion” by Davey Jones and “Recent Photographic Works” by Dayvid Lemmon curated in association with Perihelion Arts in Phoenix, Arizona, with “Sorrows & Blessings” by Lisa Mei Ling Fong in the Vault, on July 10th.
