Contemporary Art: A Foray Through LES Art Galleries

(Drivebycuriosity) - New York`s Lower East Side (LES) is infamous for her party scene where bridge & tunnel people carouse all night long. But the district also is a center of art with a cluster of ambitious art galleries. During my recent foray through LES`s art scene I discovered some interesting new art shows. I display here my favorites, a very subjective selection as usual.

Rachel Uffner gallery (170 Suffolk Street  racheluffner) has a group show called "All that glitters". Above you can see 2 works by Maria Berrio: Nativity (2014, Japanese paper on canvas, 48 x 60 inches (121.9 x 152.4 cm) & "The Lovers 2" (2015, Japanese paper on canvas, 72 x 72 inches).

At Betty Cuningham Gallery (15 Rivington Street bettycuninghamg) I enjoyed Graham Nickson`s "Inlet: Approaching Storm (1985-86, acrylic on canvas); Judy Glanztman`s "AfterAlice Neel" (1999-2000, oil on canvas) & Philip Pearlstein`s "Two Models in Bamboo Chairs" (1981, oil on canvas).

Above some works I spotted @ Thierry Goldberg  (103 Norfolk Street thierrygoldberg). 

Richard Taittinger Gallery, which is founded and owned by a heir of the French Champagne empire Taittinger (at 154 Ludlow St. taittinger) seems to spezialize in avant-garde. I found there works by Mongolian artist Tuguldur Yondonjamts.

Nicelle Beauchene Gallery  (327 Broome Street nicellebeauchene) had a interesting group show as well.

To be continued.
