So instead of griping about a show that closed over a month ago in New York, what’s say we look closer to home at stuff still on view?
The interest for me at 4411 Montrose was more about the promise of things to come than what was currently on view:
Michael Guidry’s clean-lined, dynamic abstract paintings at Wade Wilson didn’t, honestly, do much for me. However, I saw some images from Wilson’s next show, of Israeli-born artist Yigal Ozeri that looked good. These were photographs of lovely young girls worked through with watercolor, or possibly watercolor-looking digital overlay — different from the stuff on the Mike Weiss website. Will be worth checking out when the show opens next month.
I liked Cheyanne Ramos’ collages, on view at Joan Wich. According to the gallery’s schedule, they’ll be giving her a solo show this summer.
