For chichi, no one could top Fay Gold's coming out party in her new space last summer (with gorgeous carved ice martini bar and sushi). But on non-profit art space manage a consistently high energy when it comes to openings. The 2001 Biennial at the Contemporary was celebrated with live music and performance art, and the annual Artparty is a monumental blast-off for the center's first fall show. Three others merit mention: Eyedrum, which features so many local artists, there's always a crowd opening night; ShedSpace, which gets the curiosity vote, luring gallery goers into backyard sheds; and the annual Erotica show, which plays a one-night stand to great throngs of people.
