The Summer Group Exhibition

Many New York area galleries host group exhibitions in the summer. As a dealer, it's an opportunity (while all you can focus on is which weekends you can get out to the Hamptons) to let someone else do a bit of the work (many shows have independent curators) or take a survey of where your program is and how it's holding together. It's also an opportunity to work with some new artists and have fun with the title of your show. Here's a quick round-up of selected group exhibitions just opened or about to in Chelsea and Brooklyn (we'll begin with one close to my heart):

The Expression of Elemental Passions...(or, Damn Everything but the Circus) @ Plus Ultra, featuring Nancy Baker, Leslie Brack, Amanda Church, Jennifer Dalton, Nicholas Gaffney, Kate Gilmore, Joe Fig, Rosemarie Fiore, Jeff Hand, Christopher Johnson, Alois Kronschläger, Thomas Lendvai, Max-Carlos Martinez, Analia Segal, and Andy Yoder.

Nice poster Edward! I assume that's the mailer too?

Wish my wife and I could be there to cruise these shows. Looks like fun.

thanks crionna (made that one myself). Do you and Mrs. Crionna get to NYC ever?

Bambino, I love Monya's photo too, very cool...wish I had thought of it, maybe we'll do a parody with Josh and me and the men in the gallery in black kilts (arghh, protect your eyes!).

Mrs. crionna produces advertising for a well-known ad agency and shoots in NYC on occasion. I then meet her if I can.

We like NYC and had thought of moving there, but the weather and prices keep us in SF. If we moved to NYC we'd be around more art, but have less space to display it... So, we'll have to be content with visits and looking.

I liked Monya's pic too.

on Monya's pic... the body language is hilarious. Maybe at higher resolution it might look different, but I can't see a single one would looks remotely happy to be there.

that photo is a little bigger here and I think you're right...they're not happy.

I agree with Bambino, the woman second from the right is priceless.

Heh. And check the ink on the gal on the far left.

I'd love to be able to compare the picture with the artworks. Edward, you must visit and report! ;)
