Nick's Show

One of everybody's favorite lab consultants, Nick Salvatore, is having an art show opening tonite, displaying some of his recent photography. It's tonite from 6pm-9pm at Photo West Gallery, 3625 Lancaster Street. The show also contains work done by 2 or 3 other people who did work here in the lab. Nick writes:

I'm writing to let you know about an awesome art show opening tonight (Wednesday, May 2nd) that you might enjoy if you've got nothing better to do. It's a group show of photo-things revolving around the body and the nude. And I've got things in it. (A whole bunch of things, if I can get them on the wall in time.) Regardless, there's a wide range of great work on display and there's sure to be something for all interests. I'd love to see you there if you can make it.
