gallery talk

Variations on an image from tonight. Which one(s) work(s) best, if any?

gallery talk --
a man watching through the glass
blends into the night

gallery talk --
the panhandler outside
watches intently

gallery talk --
the audience watches
a homeless man outside

shielding his eyes
the homeless man peers in
at the artist's talk

gallery talk --
the panhandler outside
shields his eyes to watch

One of the key questions for me is, is it obvious enough what the phrase 'gallery talk' means? Is it clear that an artist or a curator is giving a public talk inside the gallery about the work on display there? Or is there a better way to set the scene? So much to consider for such a short burst of words...
