For most local art aficionados, this weekend is all about (e)merge, the second annual contemporary art fair running through Sunday at the Capitol Skyline Hotel. (See story on Page 24). But other things are happening around town, too.
On Saturday from 7 to 11 p.m., after the fair shuts down for the day, the Fridge will host a reception for two new exhibitions. “Asad ‘Ultra’ Walker: Quiet Walks in Dangerous Places” is the first solo show for a talented graffiti artist known for his subtle handling of spray paint. Less subtle -- but no less intriguing -- is “Laura Elkins: Packin’ Heat Talkin’ Dirty.” That show, which will inaugurate the gallery’s new exhibition/retail space called the Mini-Fridge, features the artist’s trademark self-portraits in the guise of first ladies, along with works inspired by comic George Carlin’s famous bit “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television.”
