Summer is the time for groups shows, big and small. I'm thrilled to be in two: To Leo: A Tribute from the American Abstract Artists at Sideshow Gallery in Williamsburg, and the Summer Invitational at Elizabeth Harris Gallery, which opens on Thursday in Chelsea. And I'm seeing a few others that look pretty great as well.
Elizabeth Harris Gallery, Chelsea, on Thursday, June 26, 6:00-8:00 p.m., with Rick Klauber, Paul Mogensen, Gary Petersen, Sarah Walker, and myself. (Yes, of course, I'll post a narrated tour of the show)

Life on Mars in Bushwick. I've been seeing some Facebook images posted by artists who've been creating work for this show, and it looks to be a big, raucous, kitchen-sink kind of show. I mean that in the best possible way. A few of the 67 participating artists: Katherine Bradford, Sharon Butler, Brenda Goodman, Loren Munk, Jason Rohlf, Anne Russinoff and Julie Torres
