On Thursday, with the weather slated to be a perfectly cloudless day, I headed back into the city to catch a few shows before they closed and to attend a few openings. (I also thought about actually buying a painting that caught my eye last week, but alas it was SOLD when I returned to […]
After the Affordable Art Fair, my wife and I headed over to Chelsea where I had a long list of galleries for us to visit. On this trip, there was much to admire! We started off on 29th Street on the upper edges of the art district with Alexander Ross. I first admired Ross’s work […]
This was Gallery Week in New York City and so the galleries were more crowded than usual for a Saturday in May. And unlike my last couple of trips to Manhattan, there were many shows that I loved. My wife and I headed first towards the Empire State Building where this season’s Affordable Art Fair […]

This month, Michael Schweigart and Norine Kevolic are featured at the gallery in Meditations on Nature, […]

I’ll be at the gallery all day on Sunday if […]
On Friday, light holiday traffic made for an easy trip to Manhattan for a day of East Side art viewing. While the Turnpike was empty, though, the Metropolitan Museum of Art was packed. I began at “Rooms with a View: The Open Window in the 19th Century“, an excellent medium-sized show of European paintings from […]

The online version of the writeup can be found here on Philly.com. For a snapshot from the digital version of the print edition, click below.
I enjoyed David Brooks’ column in today’s New York Times about the use of metaphor in everyday thought. Ever since I read Philosophy in the Flesh, by George Lakoff and Mark Johnson (referenced in the Brooks column), I’ve been interested in both embodied cognition and the use of metaphor in our daily reasoning. I’ve tried […]

It’s been a long time since I’ve had such a long list of galleries on my “must see” list for a visit to Chelsea. I used a relatively new web site, art-chelsea.com, to plan out my itinerary. The site makes it very easy to find shows that you’d like to see due to its simple […]
I’ve been so busy getting things ready for my upcoming show in April that I haven’t had time to finish writing about last week’s art fairs. But I did want to mention a few things about my second day in Manhattan last week. I started the day at 9:30 up at the Metropolitan Museum of […]
It’s art fair week in New York and I managed to hit four of them, plus some galleries and museums, over the past two days. First up was The Armory Show at piers 92 and 94, which is divided up into “Modern” and “Contemporary” wings, though there’s not always a clear distinction as several artists […]

I’m not sure exactly which neurons in my brain were firing when I decided to get off of the F train yesterday at 23rd Street. I might have learned the answer, though, had I been able to continue to my target destination, the “Brain: The Inside Story” exhibition at the Museum of Natural History. However, […]
Last week I was in Los Angeles to visit my brother and while there I took in a sizable sample of the entire L.A. art scene. Monday On the afternoon of my arrival I visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The last time I was in town, LACMA was about to unwrap their […]
After so many recent cold and wet Thursdays, it was a relief to finally have a gorgeous day in Manhattan for viewing art all throughout the city. They day got off to a motivating start when my car radio played perhaps one of the most famous songs that nobody knows the title to: “Sirius”, the […]
My wife and I headed down to Washington, DC, for a long weekend to participate in Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity. I’m a big Jon Stewart fan and wanted to be a body in the crowd to show support for sane discussions and “non-extremism” in politics. We didn’t get to the mall early enough […]
Last Thursday I headed up to the Midtown gallery district running along 57th Street around Madison and Fifth Avenues. First up on my list of shows to see was The Pace Gallery‘s 50th anniversary show at their 32 East 57th Street space. Like the shows in Chelsea, it’s a blockbuster show and a must-see. This […]
It’s a new season in New York and there are changes all over. Even though I feel like I’ve been visiting every month or so, quite a lot seems to be different now that Fall is here. A brand spanking new PATH train to the city with clean seats and clear signage (though it doesn’t […]
September is traditionally the start of the new art season and this month I’ll have two new paintings up (along with three older ones) at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ. The Explanatory Gap is a tough one to capture in a photograph: what you see will vary depending upon the lighting and the angle with […]
