A selected, painting-centric guide to the galleries in New York.
Contributed by Sharon Butler / Here are a few shows that stand out this month: Joan Snitzer at AIR in Brooklyn, Rebecca Morris at Bortolami, Leslie Smith III at Chart, Wade Guyton at Mathew Marks, Charline von Heyl at Petzel, and Sam Gilliam, Julian Schnabel, and Jules de Balincourt solos at Pace. We also got an announcement for a show of new Cady Noland sculptures at Gagosian in the 871 Park Avenue space. Is this a prank, we wondered (as we posted the news immediately on social media). A bunch of art fairs are in town this month, including the indefatigable Spring/Break Art Show. Art fair addresses, links, and dates are all posted at the end of the gallery listings. Summer’s over everyone — welcome back.
At breakfast, Asher said to Rose, “I’ve been invited to give a talk at VCU.”
Contributed by Sharon Butler / September traditionally has been the busiest time of the year for artists and galleries in NYC, and not even the Covid-precipitated flight of the past two years can change that.
Contributed by Sharon Butler / August is the laziest month in New York. Everyone takes a breath, some leave town, and others gear up for their September shows. That said, there is still plenty to see, usually in air-conditioned comfort. And, because gallerists are understandably loath to open new shows at the end of August, many existing ones get extended beyond announced closing dates.
