The press release for CANADA’s Katherine Bradford: Fear of Waves, which opened January 9, describes her images of water and swimmers and astral surfers as “both playful and profound”. The reception was one great ocean of revelry, and the Lower East Side after-party seemed to be open to everyone, the only difference being pizza in place of paintings. Artist-turned-paparazza ANNE RUSSINOF caught the spirit of the whole affair, if only a sprinkling of the stars in the social splash. Elisabeth Kley opened at the same venue that evening, and both shows are up for debate at The Review Panel at Brooklyn Public Library February 9. That will be the place for play to turn profound.
