Back in March 2013, I had my first inoculation into the world of Bradley Hart with his paint injected bubble wrap and the reversed side images it produced. Now with his latest show in Chelsea that opened on February 26th entitled Descendants, we can certainly see that the genesis of his art has given birth to a new strain […]
No one should throw rocks at glass houses but if one decides to do so and nobody is there – do you hear it shatter? Well, it is a given that glass is fragile and it requires specialized skill to create art with this material. Two artists showed their deft craftsmanship and delicate handling of […]
It should be telling enough when an artist collective Claire Fontaine named after a popular French brand of notebooks had a Chelsea exhibition that opened last February 26th with the title Stop Seeking Approval that showcase thinking art or out of the box work. The “anti-climb” monochromatic paint panels with paint that never dries, readymade art pieces and other thought-provoking artworks […]
The origin of the current show at Mayson Pop-Up Space, at 98 Orchard Street (the basement space at Castle Fitzjohns), derives from the recent murderous attack against the staff of Charlie Hebdo in Paris. As Ronni Anderson of Mayson explained to me, the show was meant to address various questions like: “Who are our […]

Tucked behind the Mariner’s Museum in Newport News, the Peninsula Fine Arts Center is currently housing works ranging from ancient Mali to contemporary black art. Entitled “Looking Both Ways” the exhibit creates a lineage, sometimes cyclical, through black art spanning centuries in hopes of inspiring conversation about the current and past stages of black America.
Magnificent oil paintings sprawling over two-floors of pure white walls enthrall passersby and aficionados, alike. Newsom is known as a well-established sensual abstractionist and, at the opening, half of John Newsom’s mesmerizing collection had already been sold.
Increasingly tactile, you enter the exuberantly colored gallery, only to be enthralled by increasingly chiaroscuro mind sweeping displays of […]
I have been to Arlene’s Grocery many times to see up-and-coming bands perform. This former bodega turned club, which opened in 1995, has a big following of music enthusiasts. This time, however, I was here for the opening of a group show featuring the work of Jay Riggio, Danielle Mastrion, Whisbe, Joseph Meloy, J.T. Liss, Paul […]
In November 2013 Scooter LaForge and Johnny Rozsa set out on a cross-country car ride with Rozsa’s three dogs and a first edition copy of Steinbeck’s ‘Travels with Charley’ (1960), which LaForge occasionally read out loud seeing that the radio of the car didn’t work. They stopped periodically, wherever they felt like it, and […]
