Are you shamefully hiding your body under layers of ugly sweaters after a series of Holiday eating extravaganzas? Does your 2013 resolution list contain a lot of exercise but you can’t seem to be able to identify the right workout for you? Breathe in, breathe out, straighten your spine, we’ve got you covered. How about an art workout? Run around the art openings this weekend, spring and hop above the hurdles. And you better sprint because there is a LOT to see…


Your Friday night jog begins with a light run to the Bushwick art hub, 56 Bogart. Yes, that big yellow building right across the street from Morgan L stop. Make sure you warm up really well before hitting 56 Bogart,  because once inside, you won’t have a chance to stop!

#6 Bachelorette Party @ Loft 594 (Friday, 6PM-1AM)

#7 Michael Chandler @ Valentine (Friday, 6-9PM)

It seems that painter Michael Chandler has been living a life of 20 people at once. He has been a gardener in the Hollywood Hills, done mining assessment for the Anaconda Company, worked on Christo’s Rifle Valley Curtain project, painted baseball dolls, among many other things… Does his art reflect this? Don’t miss the opportunity to decide for yourself on Friday night at Valentine. 

#8 Real Op @ Parallel Art Space (Saturday, 6-9PM)

You can expect to explore op art elements in the works of three local artists (Jeff Fichera, Cathy Nan Quinlan, and Aaron Williams) on Saturday night at Parallel Art Space.
