Yvonne's new coffee/meeting spot has one of the best people watching vantages in town, has hosted art by Michelle Magdalena and lectures by Laurie Gibson, and is humming with activity. But this photography show by Marechal will step up the creative space as a real contender for serious art and happenings. Back in the '90s, the British writer quit his ad man job, drove to Europe and reported on the war in Croatia and Bosnia from 1992-1995 for Marie Claire, the Financial Times and others. "When you come face to face wtih the limitless depravity of men making war," he writes, "it remakes you into a different person." He also took pictures. These, from Sarajevo, are the least greusome, but the most atmospheric of the lot, he says. He'll say more at the opening reception Friday, Feb. 26. (See Art story.) [WR]
