Longtime art reviewer Patricia Rosoff is celebrating the release of her book, Innocent Eye, with a party at Real Art Ways! The work of innovative artists, including many who exhibited locally, are represented in this collection of Rosoff's reviews. We invite you to join in the reflection and celebration!
Innocent Eye offers a first-hand tour of the sometimes shocking, often challenging ideas and approaches that continue to fuel the art of today. Rosoff describes the sources of contemporary painting, sculpture, photography, and mixed media in the works of such radicals as Monet, Kandinsky, and Joseph Cornell, who are now part of the tradition but who keep on catalyzing experimental innovators such as Ellen Carey, Spencer Finch, Janine Antoni, and Iñigo Manglano-Ovale.
With close (and sympathetic) consideration of conceptualists, including works by Sol LeWitt and Mierle Ukeles, and with special excitement about the inexhaustible potential in abstract art, Pat Rosoff is the gallery or museum guide you’ve always wished to have along.

Next GAZE: Friday, June 7, 2013
The H4 Socials are now GAZE (Gay Happy Hour), exclusively at Real Art Ways. Read more.
The best terrible movie ever is booked for monthly late shows at Real Art Ways.
This cult experience has been described as "so amazingly bad it's [spooning] great" charms. It's about a happy-go-lucky banker who sees his world fall apart when his friends begin to betray him one-by-one.
Like Rocky Horror and other midnight movies, The Room is chock-full of communal rituals. Cinematic audience-participation is not required but who doesn't like to throw spoons in a cinema?
Not sure of the call-backs? We've got you covered. Check out this Viewer's Guide and pay attention for a pre-film run down craziness.
"As someone who's watched more bad movies than you can imagine, I'm mostly immune to the so-bad-it's-good aesthetic, though I can see how, viewed in a theater at midnight after a few drinks, this might conjure up its own hilariously demented reality." -J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader

Thursday, June 20 | 6-10 PM
On the third Thursday of every month, creative people come together for conversation, art and music.
In June, M.A.K.U Sound System will join us for more live outdoor music. This New York-based Colombian band plays music that is traditional at its core, but with a futuristic spin that is distinctly their own.
And of course there's plenty to look at inside as well. In the galleries we're opening Ponzi Structure by John O'Donnell, and guests can also view Sam Ekwurtzel's On the Beach, and Planetalgia by Tadashi Moriyama.
