After noticing that most galleries closed their summer shows this past Friday, I decided to run the emerging artist series this week; after all, why not give people a few new artists to look at while Chelsea is down? The first piece in the series will appear later on today, but for those who prefer the real thing, Susan Sheehan Gallery has an excellent black and white abstract print exhibition up until September 8th that includes three commanding Richard Serra prints. I’ve included an image from their website, but it barely represents the power of the actual piece.
Full disclosure: I worked at Susan Sheehan Gallery 4 years ago.
