Gray Kapernekas Gallery.

I ran into Alex Gray at the Creative Council party for Ellen Harvey's wonderful new book, New York Beautification Project. We usually spend our conversations waxing poetic about Warhol, but Alex had news this time. He and Venetia Kapernekas have opened a gallery in Chelsea that focuses on mid-career artists. Can I just say how refreshing that is? You know the rules here. I just want to see good art, and I think it's a crime when good work doesn't get the attention it deserves just because it doesn't fit into some power-guarding marketing mold. Thankfully there are galleries like Gray Kapernekas.

Their next show, with Sam Samore, will be open this coming weekend.
