Next week Kharis Kennedy will unveil a series of new paintings as part of her solo exhibition, Comfort Animals, at The Greenpoint Gallery. Though Kennedy has been living in St. Croix for the last five years, her work is still imbued with trappings of high-society life and obsessive consumerism she picked up on while living in New York City. But a midnight-hued vision of her new home in the tropics is slowly beginning to take over.
Tonight Rebecca Hossack Gallery will be feting a Scottish artist with Scottish cocktails.
Glasgow-born Alasdair Wallace will be in attendance tonight, making his New York debut with “Rare Vagrant & Accidentals,” an assemblage of 21 paintings (mostly acrylic landscapes) and a small bronze sculpture that will be on display through May 7.
Tomorrow night at 365 Grand Street, a new gallery will bloom in the basement of Essex Flowers — one that harks back to the Lower East Side’s “scrappier days,” according to Gallerist. The kickoff, at 5 p.m., features the work of nine local artists in their early 30s who will curate subsequent shows at the space (which has a very minimalist website).
