MICHELLE BENOIT, MARILYN LERNER, AND PETE SCHULTE "Group Show". McKenzie Fine Art is pleased to present a three-person exhibition by artists who approach geometric abstraction in their own intuitive and distinctly personal manner. It features sculpture by Michelle Benoit, paintings by Marilyn Lerner, and drawings by Pete Schulte. May 4 - June 10, 2018.

LES, 6-8pm, Opening Reception, NATHALIE KARG GALLERY, 291 Grand Street, 4th floor.
AL HELD "Al Held in Paris, 1952-1953." An exhibition of experimental works in pigment and wax that anticipate the painter's well-known, epic-scaled geometric abstractions. Following exhibitions devoted to the Alphabet Paintings (1961−1967); Armatures (1953-1954); and Black and White Paintings(1967-1969), the current show is Cheim & Read fourth examination of a distinct body of work within Held's oeuvre. In these paintings, Held sought to fuse the improvisational, expressive freedom of Jackson Pollock with the order and geometry of Piet Mondrian; his goal, as he put it, was "to give the gesture structure." This large survey of 27 works will be presented across two venues, with the Nathalie Karg Gallery featuring paintings made in Paris in 1952-53. Cheim & Read's exhibition covers the years 1954 to 1959 after the artist returned to New York and moved into a studio on East Broadway. The exhibitions will run at Nathalie Karg Gallery from May 2 - June 15, and at Cheim & Read from May 17 - July 6.



BROOKLYN, 6-9pm, Opening Reception, SARDINE, 286 Stanhope Street.
JAMISON BROSSEAU "Skittles". Brosseau's second solo show at SARDINE, Skittles, will be comprised of minor architectural modifications to the gallery space, and the installation of 140 plywood boxes on individual plywood shelves. The boxes are 9.25 in. x 9.75 in. x 11.5 in., they are split into 7 groups of 20 and represent the colors of the visible spectrum ROYGBIV. The work draws from ideas and imagery relating to topics, like cave painting, trophy rooms, drama masks, death masks, mausoleums, catacombs, colors representing tastes, and grocery store display. May 5 - June 3, 2018.



UPPER EAST SIDE, Benefit Auction for The Studio Museum in Harlem, SOTHEBY'S, 1334 York Avenue.
Few museums are as committed to supporting artists as The Studio Museum in Harlem. Since opening in 1968, the Studio Museum has maintained its founding mission of supporting artists of African descent through its famed residency program and other initiatives. Now, as the museum begins construction on its new home, artists are giving back by offering their works in Sotheby's May auctions of contemporary art. Among the 42 artists donating works are Mark Bradford, Chris Ofili, Xaviera Simmons, Lorna Simpson, Robert Pruitt and Kehinde Wiley. The Sotheby's link above will give your highlights, and the complete catalogue for Creating Space: Artists for The Studio Museum in Harlem: An Auction to Benefit the Museum's New Building. May 16 and 17, 2018.



LES, 6-8pm, Opening, GALERIE RICHARD, 121 Orchard Street.
KOEN DELAERE "Ants on Shrimp." In each of his eight vertical paintings made in 2018, Koen Delaere has created three-demensional geometrical lines, mostly diagonal lines, which catch drops of paint, creating a spontaneous disorder into ordered patterns and a colorful vigorous energy into peaceful white stripped canvases. May 23 - June 24, 2018.

CHELSEA, 6-8pm, Opening Reception, JANE LOMBARD GALLERY, 518 West 19th Street. Howard Smith "1 + 1 + 1 ... paintings and works on paper". This is the artist's 21st solo exhibition, encompassing his substantial and vibrant body of work. By harnessing, light, expression and pigments, he fuses the material and sublime. Smith states, "My aim is to make art that is alive and breathes, which is visceral and yet has a sense of the ineffable. I would like to convey a sense of the magical in which a painting succeeds in going beyond its basic physicality and enters another realm." May 23 - June 23, 2018.



LES, 6-8pm, Artist Reception, PABLO'S BIRTHDAY, 57 Orchard Street. ECKART HAHN "Ropes and Chains." In the paintings of this new series Hahn sets a stage, wherein, by combining elements of underlaying narrative, with a physical tension evoked by masterful representation of materiality, he creates a synergy of form and semantic that transcends a literal reading of his work. A kind of dialectic between the real and the unreal is left as an open question hanging in our imagination - that is, the "fact" of what is perceived, in it's hyper-reality, and the impossible dream-like situation of the scene, introduce a cognitive dissonance that coaxes the viewer into a search for symbolist meaning. May 3 - June 17, 2018.

LES, 6-8pm, Reception for the artist, MARINARO, 1 Oliver Street.
JEFF PERRONE "Let 10,000 Tires Burn: Work 2008-2018". This body of work was set in motion in 2008 as one form of direct action opposing the regime of the more effective evil, which immediately began administering policies typical of the imperial terror state. All the great traditions of calligraphy, including Graffiti Art, take into account the risk of illegibility, abandon, and improvisation. Letters are formal scaffolding, a bone structure that requires a filling-out, making the skeletal juicy. Anchored to the ground by and on Malian mud cloth, woven by men, dyed by woman, sturdy enough to support both the material and the message. Also on exhibition is the artwork of Lindsay Burke. May 24 - June 24, 2018.


May 31 Thursday

CHELSEA, 6-8pm, Opening Reception, MILES MCENERY GALLERY, 524 West 19th Street. BO BARTLETT "Recent work." This series of recent gouaches captures the passing moments of a hazy summer day and transforms them into glistening narratives of wonder. The works depict Bartlett's tranquil summers spent with his wife, artist Betsy Eby, on Wheaton Island off of the coast of Maine, where the only signs of human life in the natural landscape are the renovated fisherman's cottages, which serve as separate studios for the artists. The exhibition will include several major paintings as well as a selection of gouaches. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, featuring an essay by Chris Crosman. May 31 - July 7, 2018.


June 19 Tuesday

LES, 6-8pm, Opening Reception, PIEROGI, 155 Suffolk Street.
Daniel Zeller "Recent Drawings". Please join us for a book release event at PIEROGI in conjunction with Zeller's current exhibition. This book on Daniel Zeller's work features an extensive essay by Robert Hobbs. Both Zeller and Hobbs will attend. Please join us for a glass of wine and informal gathering with the artist and author. Zeller's drawings will be on display through June 24th.


June 21 Thursday

CHELSEA, 6-8pm, Opening Reception, BOWERY GALLERY, 530 West 25th Street, 4th FL.
WALTER STRACH "Claiming Territory: Two Acres in the Catskills." Since purchasing this old farmstead in Samsonville, NY, Walter has become obsessed with this place. For the last 18 years he painted what was around him. Walter Strach's process now (at least one of them) is to do the same thing everyday. Get boards, paints and brushes and go to his studio which is his car and go wherever. As most of his property is inaccessible by wheel he sticks to the driveway, lawns and rocky ledges. He ends up painting the same things over and over again (only on his land), ending up with different solutions. In this show the works will show varying degrees of finish; some taking years and others days. June 19 - July 7, 2018.

We're taking a partial Summer break, only an occasional post will be added to this page.
