Opening bid on all items is $5. Doors open at 6 and bidding begins at 7. Cash, check and credit cards welcome.

Tonight marks the opening of New Ancient Structures at Space 1026. This exhibition is a collaboration from AJ Fosik and Andrew Schoultz.
Showing for the first time in Philadelphia, San Francisco-based painter Andrew Schoultz joins Philadelphia-based sculptor AJ Fosik to present a collaborative installation at Space 1026. With drawings spilling off the wall and sculptures filling the floor, New Ancient Structures will fill the gallery with an explosion of color, pattern and potent imagery.
Judging from the preview above, this should be an exciting and extremely colorful exhibition. Its a short month due to new years so see it before its over on January 30th.
Congratulations to the Space1026 Vaudevillains New Years Brigade for coming in 5th place in this year’s parade. Check out all of the pictures over at their group flickr page and at Adam Wallacavage’s blog.
