This is all getting a little too Pentagrammy even for us, for which we apologize, but hey, it’s just the way it is. Although it reminds us. Send us your openings, your galleries, your exhibitions, your books, your projects, your ideas, your thoughts, your hopes, your dreams. unbeige@mediabistro.com.

In the meantime, party schedule for tonight includes a stop to Paula Scher’s Maps show at Maya Stendhal. This is what you can expect:

THE MAPS presents a series of twelve paintings of information-glutted, politically-charged maps—of the world, the United States, Africa, South America, the state of Florida in 2000–tours-de-force painted with intuitive acuity of a master colorist, to an effect of unsettling omniscience.

Master colorist. Love it.
