Open Space, the one-year-old, collectively run gallery space in the rear of Sisson Street Automotive, has delivered a pleasantly inconsistent program since its September 2009 inception. Run by a fluctuating group of approximately 16 recent MICA graduates, exhibitions have ranged from comic-based works to painting and new media, from zine fairs to collaborative trash sculpture. With highlights including the smart, well-received group show The Suspended Moment, the all-women Puss Fust, and Fluorescent Brown (a salon of Kutztown, Pa., artists), Open Space is clearly not afraid to try something new, occasionally fall a little short of expectation, and, more often than not, exceed it.
