Art in New York

I have had a few opportunities in the last month to visit a number of museums and galleries in NYC -- one of my favorite activities. The number of galleries in NYC boggles the mind (well over 1,000) and the quality of the museums and their exhibitions even out-boggles that.

I feel so fortunate to have such easy access to so much art and always visit the exhibitions with an eye toward sharing what I see with you. So put on your walking shoes and let's go on an art tour. Hopefully this post captures a bit of the breadth and variety of art that can be seen on any random day in NYC...

Carl Palazzolo: Lennon, Weinberg, Inc. (through 12/22/16)




  






Calder and Picasso: Almine Rech Gallery (through 12/17/16)






Agnes Martin: The Guggenheim (through 1/11/17)



Highlighting her early, less-often-seen work...









Who knew that while in NYC she worked with found objects...

Ai Weiwei: Lisson Gallery (through 12/23/16)






Artists of the New York School: Allan Stone Projects (through 12/23/16)

Seth,
Thank you for sharing some facinating art from selected NY museums. Inspiration comes at surprising times and your blog post was just the spark I needed to start a crafting project this dreary day! I often find your posts stimulating, but have not commented until now. I find your blog posts filled with inspiring thoughts and ideas and when you share your art and the art of others on your blog, my creativity always pops.
Thanks! Connie
