Chelsea, November 2011

Below is a visual summary of the best of what I saw in Chelsea this weekend. So many good shows linked for me by ambitious nature, attention to fortunate events found in process and satisfying a personal need for altering materials and physically creating artworks.

Matt Blackwell at Edward Thorp, Tour and Trance (fabulous)

Elizabeth O'Reilly at George Billis, Nightfall, Union Street Bridge (closed Saturday but her collages will be on view through mid December at Swarthmore's List Gallery)

Josephine Halvorson at Sikkema Jenkins, Cracked Back, (interesting interview with her in the Brooklyn Rail this month)

Matthew Farina Recent Collages at The Painting Center

Ruth Miller at Lohin Geduld, Enamel Jug Motif (she is a member of Zeuxis, a fabulous still life painters' association)

And the great Joan Mitchell, Last Paintings at Cheim & Read
