Looking at New York
October 2, 2009
Over the past century hundreds of artists working in a variety of media have depicted New York City. "New York Then and Now," an exhibition on display at the ACA Galleries in Chelsea through Oct. 10, assembles a collection of those works. Organized around themes, such as skyscrapers and Coney Island, it features the work of a range of artists including Romare Bearden, Ralph Fasanella and Faith Ringgold.
(The above, "Milton Berle Crowns Grace Reilly Miss Venus Bathing Beauty, Coney Island: 1939" is an acrylic by Herb Rogoff.)
At the same time, the galleries are also presenting "Susan Malloy: Visions of New York" a collection of paintings and prints by the Connecticut-based artist.
For more on both exhibitions, including visiting hours, go to ACA Galleries.
