Anagnorisis Picks | April Flowers?

Anagnorisis Picks  |  April Flowers?

Again, there is simply too much going on to list, so here are a couple of the best exhibits we’re aware of!  If you missed my last set of picks, you can see it here – some of those shows are still up.

One, Tiny Trifecta, which includes a whole bunch of Anagnorisis friends, is about to open this coming Saturday the 9th.  Jeremy Hush, Paul Romano, Esao Andrews, Molly Crabapple, Seldon Hunt, Travis Louie, Angie Mason, Martina Secondo Russo, Adam Wallacavage, Chet Zar and a million billion others will have work on view.

But you should also get your butts down to Philly to see Paul Romano’s solo exhibit in Philly!

Paul Romano  |  Cross Section  |  Gallery 309

This is Gallery 309’s inaugural exhibit featuring old and new work of Paul’s.  His Houdini work pictured on the flyer above is one of his personal favorites – he’s quite enamored with the magician.  While the opening passed us by on April Fools Day, there will be another event in the space on April 15th and I’m hearing rumors about a closing party at the end of the month.

Gallery 309 is located in downtown Philly at 309 Cherry Street and is only open Friday through Sunday.    Click the flyer to go to the gallery site.

Jonathan Viner’s Computer Science and Elizabeth McGrath’s The Folly of St. Hubertus  |  Sloan Fine Art

Again, I’m posting this AFTER the opening, but honestly you don’t really see the art during such events.  It’s better that way, believe me.

Viner has been shown quite a few times in Alix’s project space.  It will be nice to see his work in the main gallery for a change.

I was hoping that McGrath was going to have a larger show, but from the look of things this little doe is sparkling in the project space all alone.  She’s gorgeous – I can’t wait to see her when I stop by tonight.  McGrath’s sculptures are the kind that don’t translate well in pictures.  It’s really necessary to see them in person.  Many of her works look messy, but the messiness is belied by how cohesive and well-constructed each work is, thus the messiness is part of the character of her works.  Her works are often obsessive in nature, which is impressive in and of itself.

Sloan Fine Art is located at 128 Rivington Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
