It’s often the Chelsea gallery scene that gets the buzz, but there are plenty of important Manhattan gallery spaces outside of the neighborhood. One of those spaces, Salon 94, 12 East 94th Street, is hosting a self-titled exhibition by MFA Fine Arts Department faculty member Marilyn Minter. The show will feature new large-scale paintings rendered with Minter’s trademark technique of layering and modeling enamel on metal, along with a selection of new photographs. There is an opening reception on Sunday, November 12, 4 – 6 pm; it is open to the public, but you must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 646.672.9212 in order to attend.
Heading downtown, Rosson Crow (BFA Fine Arts 2004) is opening “Hotel and Lounge” at CANADA gallery, 55 Chrystie Street. From November 10 – December 17, the Lower East Side gallery will be showing Crow’s large oil paintings, which depict slightly surreal interior scenes that smudge the fine lines of realism into expressive streaks of color. There will be an opening-night reception on Friday, November 10, 6 – 9, which is free and open to the public.
