The art world has its dog days of August. We have the Converge 45 event for which galleries have mounted group shows. The Seattle art fair is this weekend and many galleries are focusing their ergs on that now.

M. K. Guth has a show of sculptures: This Fable is Intended for You: A Work-Energy Principle: Final. They are abstract totems representing individuals living and working in lower Manhattan.

Everett Lofts are recommended as always. Tonight is their annual open house and party. The upstairs lofts will be open with food and drink for sale.

It's easier for you to see them all than for me to write suggestions. Some close as early as 9PM. At the Everett Lofts 625 NW Everett. Bounded by NW Everett, Broadway, Flanders and 6th Map closing ranges from 9PM-10:30ish

PNCA is recommended to stop in. They have long time cycle shows and pop ups distributed throughout the building. Included is a small collection of Bruce Nauman. PNCA 511 NW Broadway Map 6PM-9 Free
