One of the more progressive galleries in the city, The Finch Gallery, 2747 W. Armitage, is closing up shop tonight, as its executive director, Nicholas Freeman, prepares to move to New York City (cue Stephen Colbert-style fist-shaking). But before it's all over, Freeman's putting on one last exhibition. Tonight's event includes readings by Hans Hetrick, Jill Summers and Dave Snyder, music from Judson Claiborne, The Gunshy and Daniel Knox, and the audiovisual stylings of filmmaker Chris Hefner (the event is also a fundraiser for his first feature film, "The Pink Hotel"). And, of course, there will be some art on display, namely, Casey Murtaugh's drawings and John Atwood's photos.
It all starts around 6 p.m. and goes 'til they say it goes.
