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 |
Sabine Erlenwein had three rolls of film and wanted to use her camera in the streets of New York, a city she hardly knew. Time was limited, it was the day of Chinese New Year, it was cold, snow dusting the streets, and intermittent sunshine for several minutes at a time. This very special abstraction of a cold winter’s day landscape was ideal for black and white film, ideal for a wintery walk in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Five days later in Berlin Sabine Erlenwein decided to use three further rolls of film to capture the urban landscape of the area. Again she walked for about three hours from Potsdamer Platz to Brandenburger Tor and Unter den Linden. It was a mild winter’s day, again with sunshine here and there. She had a feeling that there could be a kind of conversation between these two big cities — as if the view through the camera could connect them.

The paintings on exhibition were made in the summers of 2012, 2014, and 2015, during Vincent Baldassano’s tenure as a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome. These works were inspired by ancient sites that he visited, such as Ostia Antica, the Pantheon, and the ruins of Mithraic temples, as well as by the city’s historical churches and the visible and tangible evidence of centuries of Italian culture.
