February 15 - 24, 2018.



CHELSEA, 6-8pm, Opening Reception, JAMES COHAN, 533 W 26th Street, BILL VIOLA "Moving Stillness." The exhibition features two large-scale installations, Moving Stillness: Mount Rainier (1979) and The Sleepers (1992), both significant works that use the element of water as a metaphor for human consciousness and reexamine our understanding of the natural world.

CHELSEA, 6-8:30pm, Opening Reception, THOMAS ERBEN GALLERY, 526 West 26th Street, floor 4, MIKE CLOUD "Quilt painting."

February 22 - March 31, 2018.



BROOKLYN, 6-9pm, Opening Reception, ROBERT HENRY CONTEMPORARY, 56 Bogart Street, PANCHO WESTENDARP "Tension & Compression."

CHELSEA, 4-6pm, Opening Reception, NOHO M55 GALLERY, 530 W 25th Street, DANIÈLE M. MARIN "Dependent Fragments." This new abstract painting exhibition is about the entwinement of a personal vision and the cultural dynamics of our era's discontinuous thinking. My painting process addresses this balancing Act through the use of fragmentation and color Relationships. February 20 - March 10, 2018.



LES, 3-5pm, Opening Reception, PIEROGI, 155 Suffolk Street, REED ANDERSON "Days Calling Nights." Reynolds' unpretentious process and modest media consist simply of drawing in pencil and ink on paper.

February 24 - March 25, 2018.
