January in New York, but with the temperature below twenty degrees, it feels more like Chicago. Fortunately, there are any number of exhibitions opening this month that are worth seeing. With that in mind, I wanted to do a quick post about a few shows opening in Chelsea, Thursday night, January 8th:
There are two solo exhibitions at Elizabeth Harris Gallery. In the large space is Holly Miller: twist, bend and rise…, and in the small space William Carroll: manhattan. There is a catalogue for Holly’s show, for which I wrote the essay (and with which I am particularly pleased). Bill continues to document his walking tour of New York City, which I have written about previously for artcritical.com. Although these are two solo shows, both artist’s works offer very personal observations on the passage of time.
Meanwhile, group shows I plan on seeing –
At Morgan Lehman Gallery is Rough Cut a group show curated by Jennifer Samet and Elizabeth Hazan featuring the work of Hazan and eight others who use stencil technique to create their works.
At Margaret Thatcher Projects is Reconfigured with four artists, including one of my favorites, Meg Hitchcock.
At Lennon Weinberg is a work on paper show, Salon du Dessin, featuring represented and invited artists.
