Shop ’til you drop, take advantage of fantastic markdowns, and enjoy a scoop of Everything Bagel ice cream! Here are five things to do this weekend in the Central West End.
Experience “Both Sides Now” | projects+gallery
Exhibition Opens Friday, January 29
Kick off your weekend exploring project+gallery’s newest exhibition “Both Sides Now.” The group exhibition, titled after the Joni Mitchell song from her 1969 album “Clouds,” features artworks that are evocative of our uniquely dichotomous moment, in which the simplest forms of intimacy are as elusive as inestimable existential concerns. Featured artists include El Anatsui, Donald Baechler, Louise Bourgeois, Michael Byron, Tom Friedman, Terence Koh, and Marilyn Minter, among others.
You can also join them on Thursday, February 4 at 6 p.m. on Instagram Live (@bb_projects) for a walkthrough of the exhibition with projects+gallery Senior Director Bridget Melloy and Associate Curator Margaret Rieckenberg.

Explore “Innovative Ceramics” | Duane Reed Gallery
Exhibition Opens Saturday, January 30
Duane Reed Gallery is pleased to bring together six ceramicists who each have a distinct voice and vision with their approach to the medium: Jeremy Brooks, Judith Ernst, Kyle Johns, Matt Mitros, Peter Pincus, and Joey Watson. While their respective aesthetic interests are unique, as a group their works share a dialogue with each other, giving insight into the collective interests of ceramicists in this moment.
This exhibition will be available for viewing from January 30 through March 6, 2021. Due to COVID-19, this exhibition will not have a traditional opening reception, however the gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for viewing. Images of the work are also available on their website.
