All the things the Art on Paper Fair does right
Big Names and New Discoveries
Art on Paper had plenty of recognizable names on offer: author and artist Dave Eggers’ humorous sketches of animals at Electric Works, as well as Barnaby Whitfield and William Powhida at Gallery Poulsen. But I’ve always relished discovering new artists at the fair, and this year I wasn’t disappointed. Josephine Taylor’s pastel-colored paintings of nudes at Catharine Clark Gallery were entrancing, and Rachel Grobstein’s miniature paintings mounted on pins played tricks on the eye at AHA Fine Art.

“The Paris-based Cutlog art fair has returned to the Lower East Side for another year, with 50 galleries setting up inside the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center. Opened on Wednesday, the internationally focused art offerings sprawl through two floors of the old schoolhouse, weaving in classrooms and hallways.”

“A layered site-specific installation by Monika Zarzeczna with Lesley Heller Workspace takes up one room, while across the way are Haunted Mansion–esque mirror pieces by Daniel Horowitz with L’Inlassable Galerie, where faces are creepily washed out to drip down the walls. (The same gallery also had odd works by Edgar Sarin that you’re not supposed to open until he’s dead.) Jeremiah Johnson’s “House of Worship,” presented by Arcilesi Homberg Fine Art, constructs a religious temple from empty pill bottles.”

“Unfortunately, traffic was light at the official opening, but for those with art fair fatigue who want something more exploratory, or for those who prefer their experiences outside of the white walls, Cutlog is one to check out.”
