While it would be pushing it to call Brighton a true art district yet, it has several of the city's best and most serious-minded alternative galleries. Because their hours are so limited, it's not often easy to see work at them in one night — or at all. Thus, the fact three galleries there are sharing an opening night from 7-10 p.m. this Saturday serves as a golden opportunity to get down there.
At semantics gallery, 1107 Harrison Ave., Suzanne Silver's Broken English will be debuting, offering — according to the gallery — "drawings, objects, and installations where unexpected materials are combined to explore the disorder and evasiveness of language." (The show is up through April 30, regular hours are noon-4 p.m.here for details.
Meanwhile, U-turn Art Space at 2159 Central Ave. presents Pared: Works by Matthew Deleget and Ellen Nagel. She will offer sculpture; he monochrome works on panel and a conceptual project based on artist catalogues. For info on other hours while the show remains up through April 30, go here.
Finally, Synthetica at 2157 Central Ave., a gallery that only rarely has dedicated hours or announced shows, is using Saturday night to debut a four-artist show called Capacity for Awareness, which pertains to robots. (It's staying open until 11 p.m.) Go here for more information.
