What to see: This month, on the Lower East Side, we recommend Two Coats contributor Riad Miad’s solo show at Equity Gallery and Chris Dorland’s show at Lyles & King. In Brooklyn, look for Jessica Weiss at 490 Atlantic, and note that Sheila Pepe has curated a show at Platform Project Space that opens March 2. We’ve never been to Field of Play in Gowanus, so we’re going to try to get over there to see Hopscotch, with Alyson Ainsworth, Kat Chamberlin, and Leonora Loeb. CLEARING is opening a new space at 260 Bowery at the end of the month, with a big group show called “Maiden Voyage.” In Chelsea, who can resist “Ass Backwards,” philisophical wise-ass David Humphrey’s latest at Fredericks & Freiser? And we’ll try not to forget Josephine Halvorson’s “Unforgotten,” which opens at Sikkima Jenkins on March 17. The news from our neighbors in the global art world is that Gerhard Richter, who left Marian Goodman Gallery last year, is having his inaugural show at Zwirner this month, featuring “new and recent abstract works.”

Hudson Valley Selected Gallery Guide: March, 2023
This past week members of the Two Coats staff were in Baltimore where we met a talented young curator who grew up spending summers near the Hudson Valley. She told us that the last time she was at the family cabin, she couldn’t believe how the area has become such a magnet for so many NYC area artists and galleries. But it’s true. Here’s our selected guide for March.
NYC Selected Gallery Guide: February, 2023
We lose a few days in February, so there isn’t any time for procrastinating. Among the early-closing must-sees are David Deutsch’s solo at Eva Pressenhuber, Claudia Keep at March (recently reviewed), and the exhibition of sculptors’ drawings that Carl D’Alvia organized at Helena Anrather. New shows include Erika Ranee’s first solo at Klaus von Nichtssagend (opens Feb 18) and Brenda Goodman at Sikkema Jenkins (opens today). And, finally, Paul Pagk’s outstanding show at Miguel Abreu is required viewing.

Is February the new March? Take a look at the number of interesting shows opening in the Hudson Valley this month and you’ll see what I mean.
NYC Selected Gallery Guide: January, 2023
It’s 2023, and we’re still publishing, thanks to all the readers who made generous contributions during our 2022 Year-End Fund Drive. In Brooklyn, former Two Coats Resident Artist Gyan Shrosbree has a solo at Ortega y Gasset Projects. Strong abstract painting shows include Paul Pagk in his first outing at Miguel Abreu and, at McKenzie Fine Art, Rob De Oude. There are also a slew of mega group-shows (we’re looking at you DC Moore), so everyone will be out and about. Seems like we’re off to a good start. Happy new year!
Hudson Valley Selected Gallery Guide: January, 2023
Here we are, at the beginning of another year, and we’re feeling kind of frisky with all the possibilities. If you’re flying out of the area, perhaps down south to warmer weather, don’t forget to stop by the Albany International Airport Gallery and check out “Lumen,” a show comprising work by Shaina Gates, Ben Godward, Heather Hutchison — all artists who engage with light in unusual ways. Honestly, though, everything looks good. Why not go see it all? Put Lizzie Gill and Kristen Jensen’s show at Geary in Millerton on your calendar. It opens at the end of the month.
Hudson Valley Selected Gallery Guide: December, 2022
Here we are, at the end of the year, ready for outdoor lights, holiday parties, gift exchanging, and winter break. Why not stop by the galleries and pick up some pieces to give to friends and family? Check out LABSpace and Pamela Salisbury for big shows that each feature a sleigh-full of small work.

While many of the galleries and artists are down in Miami at the art fairs, Two Coats of Paint is engaged in our 2022 Year-end Fundraising Campaign. If you enjoy our art coverage, particularly our focus on painting exhibitions, the lives of painters, and the New York art community, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to help keep the conversation (and monthly gallery guides like this one) going in 2023. Then go check out some of the shows listed below.
NYC Selected Gallery Guide: November, 2022
First things first. If we don’t all get out and vote on November 8, and Lee Zeldin beats Kathy Hochul in what is now a close governor’s race, sensible gun laws and abortion rights would be at risk. Once you’ve minimized that risk, even if you yourself have a couple of exhibitions coming up, resist the solipsistic urge to hole up in the studio. Get out and see some shows. In Bushwick, Astrid Dick and Erika Ranee are in a two-person show at M. David & Co. that looks well worth a trip on the L train. Delphine Hennelly has a solo opening at nearby Carvahlo Park on November 12. In Tribeca, at Canada, look for Xylor Jane’s exploration of prime palindromes — numbers that read the same forward…
Hudson Valley Selected Gallery Guide: November, 2022
This month, don’t forget to look up and admire the trees, which are having the last gasp of color that I’ve always thought is impossible to paint (or photograph) without seeming hopelessly sentimental. Meanwhile, in the galleries, check out “Big Little Color,” an elegant abstraction show at Carrie Haddad featuring geometry, pattern, and sophisticated color. Ashley Garrett, Charlie Goering, and Evan Halter are in “knowing when,” a group show at Turley Gallery that celebrates knowing when to ignore the internal voices and listen, and knowing when to stop. At LABspace Susan Carr is back for another outstanding solo with new work that continues her exploration of, and search for, happiness. And finally, don’t miss “The Material, The Thing,” a big survey of talented Hudson Valley artists at the Dorsky Museum. It’s only on view through November 6.
