Come on out to the opening reception for the first-ever solo show by The Fridge Owner and Gallery Director Alex Goldstein, aka Alex Gold.

One hundred stencil and spray paint works on paper will be displayed in the gallery.  The exhibition will evolve over the course of the month; buyers are invited to take the works directly off the walls instead of waiting until the exhibit comes down.
