THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17
Opening: “How Many Miles to Babylon: Recent Paintings from Los Angeles and New York” at C24 Gallery
Moving to a 5,000 square-foot space in the heart of the Chelsea Arts District, C24 Gallery inaugurates its new, two-story gallery with a group show organized by Los Angeles based critic and curator Peter Frank. Featuring eight painters—four from L.A. and four from New York—the exhibition runs the gamut of current artistic styles, from Heather Gwen Martin’s 2015 abstraction of figurative forms, titledCousins, to the hyper-realism of Marc Dennis’ art historical pastiche Ironman, Captain America and a Russian Mobster Walk Into a Bar, which humorously constructs a new scenario for these three characters and Edouard Manet’s famous painting A Bar at the Folies-Bergère.
C24 Gallery, 560 West 24 Street, New York, 6-8 p.m.
