Closing dates mid-summer are rare, but indeed noteworthy as eight (8) very important exhibitions end this weekend, next weekend and the first weekend in August. Mark your calendars and make time to see these shows, if you haven't seen them already. I have seen them several times and intend to see each one again to bid them a fond farewell. Yes, they are that good!
