Catharine Clark Gallery: Deborah Oropallo - Bell the Cat
Comment by AB: Deborah Oropallo's superbly reworked period portraits contribute to ongoing conversations around politics, power struggles, stereotypes, gender matters and precious freedoms that may soon be in the crosshairs. It's all rather disquieting and rightly so. Definitely worth seeing.

Brian Gross Fine Art: Ruth Pastine - Witness

George Lawson Gallery: Brandon Shimmel - Leisure Destination
Comment by AB: The leisure destinations referred to in the show's title may well be the surfaces of faraway planets. If that's what planets really look like, then Beam me up, Scotty. Plus extra added bonus. It's a two-fer. Each painting is ensconced in a hi-tech sculptural frame.

Jack Fischer Gallery: Lauren DiCioccio - comfort objects
Comment by AB: Lauren DiCioccio's whimsical fabric sculptures (and a couple of bronzes) are certain to elevate the atmosphere of wherever they set. And they're beautifully made too. Check 'em out.

Eleanor Harwood Gallery: Francesca Pastine - Curiosity
Comment by AB: You can always count on Francesca Pastine to quiz the limits of aesthetic invention. She also continues to demonstrate that Artforum's actually serve a purpose in life.

Themes + Projects: Love & Kisses, George - Brigitte Carnochan
Comment by AB: Suppose you discover a stash of love letters written to a woman between 1929 and 1932, read through them and then try to imagine what she might have been like. Brigitte Carnochan does that here.
