Gabrielle Garland

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday January 28
Hap Gallery
916 NW Flanders St.
 
Since November, there’s been a new gallery in the old Chambers space (916 NW Flanders St.). It’s called Hap Gallery, a moniker that, according to owner Judy Jacobson, is meant to evoke happenings, happenstance, happiness, haphazardness and all other things mutable and impetuous. This month’s show is a suite of 10 oil paintings by New York City artist Gabrielle Garland. They’re interior views of homes and historic landmarks, painted in a quirky style so rudimentary they first appear to have been made by a schoolkid, not an MFA graduate of the University of Chicago. But Garland’s style is so bad, it’s good. There’s a winning innocence in these clunky compositions that’s impossible to resist—and given Garland’s pedigree, we’re betting the works’ naïveté is anything but happenstance. Through Jan. 30.
