We spent all afternoon walking around Chelsea galleries. The highlights:
Camelot Cleaner, 15 X 17, acrylic, pencil, and ink on paper, 2003
Henry Horenstein: Honky Tonk, Portraits of Country Music 1972 - 1981 at Sarah Morthland -- getting in touch with my heritage
Playing For Tips
Tootsies Orchid Lounge Nashville, Tennessee, 1974
Gelatin Silver Print, 16 X 20 inches
I can't get an image from her site, since it still shows the last show, but Framing Architecture, a show of architecture-related art curated by Daniel Marzona at Elga Wimmer is a great show. I especially liked the paintings and sculpture of Simon Aldridge, the works on paper by Eric Brown, and the styrofoam sculptures by Patrick Meagher. We saw Eric's work at the Cheap show at White Columns, which was where we picked up our Matthew Callinan piece.
Nancy Spero: The War Series 1966-70 at Galerie Lelong -- it is pretty rare to see such beauty in angry, political work like this
Love, Peace, Glory
Gouache and ink on paper
Contra/Post at JG Contemporary -- luckily the initials all worked out. The former Jay Grimm gallery on 28th Street has been acquired by Madison Avenue stalwart James Graham and Sons. They have a nice show of work by Joe Fyfe, James Hyde, Nancy Shaver, and others.
Yellow and Black Horizontals and Red and Green Verticals
Wooden boxes, plastic blocks, flashe, acrylic and house paint
