fltgc: gbe + team x2

much belated fltgc: gavin brown and team gallery. okay, i feel like a broken record but really blowing it on the weekly lunch time gallery crawls.  i tend to miss something in my cultural appetite and realize i'm sorely hungry for some art.  it was going to be a big crawl, but unfortunately jack hanley, maccarone and christina ray were closed.  however, i was able to get some good arty eats in.

gbe was featuring the large scale portraiture of alex katz.  his figurative paintings are simple, yet somehow eye-opening at the same time.  the dude is 84 and still painting so that's ahhhmazing.  check it out before it closes next weekend.

after getting denied at maccarone and jack hanley, it was due east to the team galleries.  over at the wooster outpost (where jack black was filming something next door), the sculpture of greek artist vlassis caniaris is on exhibit.  his pieces play against stillness with movement. swing, bike, roll.  all stationary in space.

in the grand space, new york artist marc hundley peppered the walls with posters and text pieces for his exhibit, joan baez is alive.  his works are like grand pieces of a scrapbook with key lyrics and quotes capturing a place, time and feeling.
