“It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other. That’s the path we’re on now. What a withering, ignoble end.”
Stopping by the 529 W. 20th street building on a Saturday afternoon gallery-hopping spree (or whenever you drop into Chelsea) is de rigueur. Virtually every gallery there has art worth seeing on a monthly basis. This go-around Kathryn Merkel is presenting a show that includes some engaging and provocative city-scape paintings by Lisa Breslow.
