Dear Shaded Viewers,

Something I discovered on my recent trip to Riga was they have some of the smallest galleries I’ve ever seen. In a way it is a great idea bringing art to the public, just passing buy you can appreciate a few of them. I enjoyed my visit to the 427 gallery, quite small but well curated with a lot of irony and fun. They recently had a fashion show where the 22 attendees were all part of the fashion show. I think one passerby also enjoyed the event.
