    Encased within the brilliant glow in the white interior of Christian Berst Art Brut on the LES, two shows asserted itself as bold and making the case of why art is King in this part of Manhattan. The selection of photographs from the late John Kayser for Direct Contact was evocative of the golden tone era of seventies imagery where the models evoke moments that are intimate even though it is all on artistic display.  Pigmented Rectangles by Charles Andresen boldly had color come to life in swirls and fantastical forms. Both breathed vitality on the brilliant white walls of the gallery. This is proof positive that art brings a blank wall to life.
