Art: Is First Thursday over? (Regina Hackett)
Regina Hackett is the former arts critic for the Seattle P-I. This, from her blog Another Bouncing Ball.
Even though it’s the first Thursday of the month, very few Pioneer Square galleries are opening shows tomorrow night. In the old days, when PS galleries marched in lock step, everybody opened on First Thursday and closed at the end of the month.
That 12-show a year schedule was tough to maintain. Too tough, plus, it didn’t allow for the work to sink in. Some galleries drifted toward 6-week shows, and others began to open and close when they felt like it.
