Gallery Openings in New York City (NYC, NY, Manhattan)

It is almost impossible to list all the exhibition openings that take place in New York City art galleries. There are so many galleries, and so little time! Here is a good sampling to start with.

Opening Reception |
MFA Fine Arts presents a collaborative exhibition of sculpture, painting and video created by department students Scott Ferguson and Andrew Jilka, curated by Zoe Frederick. Searching for the “key to an extraordinary life," Ferguson and Jilka composed their work of only red, blue and green (RGB), the color components of a digital screen, as a means of conveying the back channels and codes of self-proclaimed cyber life coaches and celebrities alike.

Valentina Ornaghi and Claudio Prestinari have worked as a duo since 2009 and have exhibited all around Italy and Europe. They will present an exhibition titled Ornaghi&Prestinari featuring a series of their most recent works. The show will include both sculpture-installations and works on paper and on wood board thus highlighting the artists’ interest in materials and their potential as well as in new interdisciplinary methods of approach to their manipulation. Blending together pictorial and plastic figuration, reflections on conceptual art and personal life experiences, Ornaghi & Prestinari invite the viewers into an intimate and delicate universe. Their practice is focused on dualities between thought and action, concept and manual activity, with a marked attention for spontaneous and unpredictable intuitions.
