Unbreak My Heart. Two weekends left.
BREAKING: Anaba pays a visit to the show. Thanks, Martin! Also, Unbreak Break My Hearter Kate Gilmore gets a great review from Roberta Smith in the NYTimes for her amazing solo show at Smith-Stewart. Hell, yeah!
There're just 2 weekends left to see Unbreak My Heart. It still RULES so if you haven't seen it, the time is now. PLUS, this weekend is the last weekend of the Gilbert & George show at the Brooklyn Museum which is just four blocks away. Can you say double feature?
The other week Rosanna Bruno got an email out of the blue from some guy who saw her paintings from the street and had to come in to the gallery to get a closer look. Yes. This show stops traffic. I've spent some afternoons in the gallery and there's always this wonderful block of light that appears on Beth Gilfilen's painting between 3 and 4 o'clock. Although my favorite story from the show happened when I was gallery-sitting one weekend and two little girls from the neighborhood stopped in the gallery, probably about 8 and 10 years old. They started watching Kate Gilmore's Heart Breaker video. After about 30 seconds of watching Kate take her axe to the big wooden heart the older girl turned to me and said, "Somebody sure musta broke her heart." Let's face it, y'all. Art is awesome.
