A Monstrous Weekend Ahead! | Anagnorisis Picks
This coming Saturday, July 10th, is going to have folks reeling in northern Chelsea! Four openings are taking place just a few blocks away from each other, so let’s say this would make for a great Saturday night Dark Art Walk. Start with Joshua Liner Gallery first – the other reception at Last Rites will stay open much later into the evening, while Liner will most likely end right at 9pm.

Both of these exhibits will be up through August 7th. Joshua Liner Gallery is located at 548 West 28th Street, between 10th and 11th, 3rd floor.

Only a few blocks north, and going on later in the evening is a night all about Jason D’Aquino at Last Rites Gallery. One room will be dedicated to a solo exhibit of Jason’s new miniature works while the other will hold Lead Poisoning (no preview online as of this post), an impressive array of works from the Pop Surreal genre. The list of participating artists is to die for (especially death by pencil, apparently):
Wayne Anderson, Esao Andrews, Carrie Ann Baade, Glenn Barr, Rachel Bess, Andrew Brandou, Scott G. Brooks, Jon Butcher, Estra Byrd, Molly Crabapple, Robert Craig, Brian Despain, Daniel Martin Diaz, Xiaoqing Ding, Brandon Dunlap, Ron English, Ewelina Ferruso, Fred Harper, Pedro De Kastro, Viktor Koen, Craig LaRotonda, Jason Limon, Michael Mararian, Chris Mars, David MacDowell, Tara McPherson, the PIZZ, Matthew Pleva, Anthony Pontius, Christopher Ryniak, Jose Manuel Schmill, Greg (Craola) Simkins, David Stoupakis, Gary Taxali, Tom Thewes, Miles Thompson, Tara Warwick, Keith Weesner, Eric White and Chet Zar.
These two exhibits will be up only until July 25th. Please note the gallery hours if you try to see these exhibits after the opening – an appointment may be necessary! Last Rites is located at 511 W. 33rd Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues, 3rd floor.
