Featured Exhibition: Margaret Grimes Memorial Exhibition at Blue Mountain Gallery


Margaret Grimes was not just a painter of nature, she was a force of nature. She belongs to an illustrious lineage of artists depicting New England, in her case primarily Connecticut and Maine, and yet her take on this canonical terrain was always fresh and uniquely her own—won, in fact, from intrepid battling through forbidding … Continued

A panel today on Lennart Anderson at the Resnick-Passlof Foundation with painters Steve Hicks, Rachel Rickert and Kyle Staver, 4-6PM

It takes an exhibition. Despite being in his studio every day, Lennart Anderson, who died in 2015 left a relatively modest oeuvre. An artist of legendary tonal subtlety, he obsessively reworked his classical idylls, contemporary street-scenes, portraits and still lifes over many years. In his last decade, Anderson was the victim of macular degeneration, persevering … Continued

Jennifer Coates in the National Arts Club’s Exhibition, “Painting the Narrative”

Dee Shapiro has gathered a spirited cross section of storytellers in paint in an exhibition that also showcases works by Laura Karetzky, Judith Linhares, Ernesto Renda, Kyle Staver, and George Towne. Coates’s almost ribald bacchanalia manages to channel modernism and classicism simultaneously, a kind of Derainean riff on Poussin. The exhibition continues at Grammercy Square through … Continued

Brenda Zlamany at the Grand Flag Project

Defiance, celebration, warning, rallying: There are so many good reasons to unfurl a flag. Some of those hoisted above his home by artist James Esber on Williamsburg’s Grand Street entreated citizens to vote recently, although others over the years have defied the raison d’etre of flags with witty subversions intellectually worthy of the bohemian hood. But Brenda Zlamany’s double-sided masked … Continued

Jennifer Riley at 1GAPGallery, Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn


COVID has canceled countless exhibitions, projects, events. But in a subtler grade of cruelty, for shows that have gone ahead there has been stunted attendance and muted fanfare in what are nonetheless turning points in artists’ careers. Jennifer Riley has recently opened a solo exhibition (which I curated) at the 1GAP Gallery in the Richard … Continued
