Fools rush in
The building, on the east side of 19th Street between J and K streets, won’t win any awards. It’s a fairly ugly former Western Pacific office building that was built next to the old Western Pacific depot, now the Old Spaghetti Factory. Go around to the east side off K Street, facing the depot, and enter the basement, and you’ll find a new gallery, Fools Foundation. The gallery will buck local convention by opening its shows on the first rather than the second Saturday of the month. Eventually, the foundation’s proprietor hopes to add some kind of music into the gallery’s large, echoey space. The first show, titled Democracy, Whisky, Sexy, begins this weekend and runs through November 27, features works by Christopher Reno, Morgan A. Dubar and Adrianne Crane. The opening reception is slated for Saturday, November 6, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the gallery, located at 1025 19th Street, Suite 0.
