Back to reality but reminiscing about my incredible adventure frolicking through #NYC last week when I stopped by a random art gallery party and sipped prosecco while listening to people discuss the intricacies of urban art. I would've bought this piece if it wasn't thousands of $$. The hustle bird is my favorite part. #artlover#adventuretime#nycart#artgallery
Did you know that in Ohio, it’s illegal to disrobe in front of a man's portrait? You'll learn so much about the absurd, eccentric, and sex-obsessed laws we have in each of the 50 States in Olivia Locher's "I Fought the Law" exhibition @stevenkashergallery. Thru Oct. 21. (@olivialocher)
ALAN BRAY explores the landscape of inland Maine. A poetic and visionary painter, his often-peculiar vistas celebrate the phenomena of nature in the ordinary.

While at first glance David Donovan Jensen’s Hymn series paintings read as calm and peaceful, his process is in fact intensely physical and time-consuming. Listening to records of a Russian children’s choir prompted David to question the meanings behind choral hymns, and to explore this theme through his paintings--each piece is meant to convey an investigation into and celebration of an object, matter, state of being, etc. His work’s titles also aspire to act as short poems, an additional layer to the important conversations between the finished painting within the series: its colors, textures, and intentional areas of abrasion. Each work stands alone, but when brought together, they “sing out to one idea.”
His paintings allow David to combine multiple creative impulses and inspirations, to produce works that are original, individual, and visually compelling. The visual pun of wood grain pattern on canvas adds a playful element to the iridescent cool white and blue-grey palette of Frost Hymn, and makes for a striking conversation piece within a modern space.
