We simply walked right past the Luggage Store Gallery placard, and would've continued right on down Market Street if it weren't for the man selling cigarettes outside, who, noting our look of bewilderment, kindly directed us to the second floor space. The dark, joyfully graffiti and sticker-encrusted staircase led us to the burst of light that is the Luggage Store Gallery, notorious for its support of young, up-and-coming (or already-arrived) artists such as local favorites Chris Johanson, Barry McGee, and Keegan McHargue, all of whom have exhibited there in some capacity.
