Party at Phong's House
Peter Gallo - it says "Clifford Still".
Party at Phong's House, at Galeria Janet Kurnatowski - good show, curated by Chris Martin.
This was one of the best group shows I saw last week, along with the B. Wurtz-curated show at White Columns. Both are artist-curated medium-specific shows built around central artists... the Chris Martin (painter) show stars Ron Gorchov, the B. Wurtz (sculpture) show grounded by a Sol Lewitt.
forget who.... someone please tell me. also, can't remember this artist's name either. UPDATE: Nora Griffin (?)
The show included 80-something paintings by more than thirty artists. I first checked out all of the work thinking about what I liked most before doing it a second time with the identifying artist list... was glad to discover that two of my "crap" picks were by a kid and an elephant. I should be an art adviser.
who is this artist? i had it misattributed for a long time.
Really liked the black Matt Connors painting... but couldn't get an adequate photograph.
Party at Phong's House closed YESTERDAY... sorry if you missed it.
