Tonight! We do not have a show or anything going on at Black Sheep tonight, however there is an opening for an art exhibition at the WUIS building on the University of Illinois campus (One University Plaza, WUIS-130) that very much relates to our space and a lot of the shows we have hosted. That is the opening for the “Glimpse Into The Underground” art exhibition, featuring the works of Brian Galecki (Dumb Records, Black Sheep, Dumb Fest), Kamila Glowacki (Nectar, Girls Rock C-U), and Veronica Mullen (Dumb Fest, Blips & Chitz, Ghoul Jr.). The opening will be taking place this evening from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. This will include poster and album artwork on display, as well as plenty of photos from Veronica. Brian Galecki will have limited edition screen printed posters available for sale just for the showing.

Check out short interviews NPR Illinois and Rachel Otwell organized to preview the show right here. Find a facebook event right here. After today’s opening the gallery will remain open to the public for viewing during the day up until November 3rd. Also check out a video preview of what to expect below:
