Possibly the last weekend of decent weather to enjoy looking at art before the winter coats and scarves really come out-  so shall we…
 CLOSING TODAY  (& highly recommended)
 Chakaia Booker
A fluid space projective space
David Krut Projects
526 W. 26th St., Suite 816
New York, NY 10001
hours today 10am – 6pm

Chakaia Booker Untitled, 2014 Woodcut, hand painting, embossing 19.75 x 14in

I don’t know- I can go on and on about this gallery- originally based out of Johannesburg- South Africa, champions of contemporary printmaking in the 21st century and first to showcase El Anatusui before he went and got all famous(you can see him being all famous here and here). Chakaia Booker’s mixed media prints will not disappoint. They were created in collaboration with master printer Phil Sanders, former director of the RBPMW.  You can read more about the exhibit here and more about Chakaia at the gallery here . You can also catch David Krut Projects in action at the 2014 Editions/Artist Books Fair where you can feast your eyes on original linocuts by William Kentridge and other works on paper. They will be at booth #22.  Happening during print week in early November, the whole fair is quite fantastic and is free to the public on the weekend.


Print Facets:
Five Centuries of Printmaking
The Curator Gallery
520 W. 23rd Street
New York, NY 10011
hours today 11am – 6pm 

Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Female Head, 1915, woodcut, 13.5 X 10.5 in

New new new new new –gallery and therefore, off the beaten path of the usual suspects of gallery hoppers -but I don’t think for long. Open only a few months with just 3 other exhibits under their belts, this salon style print show is a sweet mix of old century masters along side established and lesser known contemporaries.  The show is hung handsomely, moving you nicely into and through the space of a diverse body of varying printmaking techniques and styles. Most of the techniques are traditional with a few serenely stunning digital prints thrown in the mix.  Located  on 23rd street on the southwest corner of the High Line’s underbelly- this is a show not to be missed. If you do go -as you should, make sure to ask about the print bar- a room located off the main space showcasing unframed matted prints.

A newbie-  landing in her studio 3 months prior. My photograph does her work no justice- you have to see her intricate collaged paintings(my words not hers) for yourself. They will take your breath away.

And another artist I believe is new to the studio program who displayed these gorgeous paper cut installations.
 Tai Hwa Goh, Studio 607
I took these great shots of the artists’ work from EFA Open Studios’ opening night reception where they were serving up EFA specialty cocktails made with handmade vodkaI suggest you do your best to swing by. Other events in the neighborhood will be happening for the Garment District Arts Festival‘s last day as well.

“Meet the artists. Witness the process. See where art is created.”

Thursday October 24th(tomorrow!)

6-10pm Opening Reception

One of my favorite all around good times perusing contemporary art and mingling with the artists who make it. Opening night is not to be missed! Highlighting some handpicked favs below but don’t let that stop you from checking out all the artists.

David Greg Harth (people call him “Harth”)

Studio # 711

You never know what Harth will be giving away for free. One year it was hearts – real ones!!! This year it will be limited edition drawings. Remember to ask for one.  While in his studio check out his Holy Bible Projecttrade on his “I AM” stamped currency with different messages, or sign up for his photo booth project-Every Person I Know And Every Person I Don’t Know.

Noah Klersfeld

Studio # 507

Noah is an artist and an architect. I stumbled upon his studio about a year ago and was quite intrigued by his videos of geometric images pulsating across the screens. Sweet man, mesmerizing work. Look for the dark studio(videos running = less light needed) with an image projected on the wall opposite his studio entrance. 



Check out Noah talking about his “time offset geometries”(above) and other works-

Toyin Odutola 

Studio #412

Odutola has been a hot topic of late in the arts with her pen and ink black portraitures. I believe she is a recent addition to the EFA studios. Lucky us! You certainly don’t want to miss this opportunity to meet her and see her work up close and personal.
