FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO MISSED LAST WEEK here are some of the highlights in Chelsea nicely documented in a video by Jerry Saltz, Senior Art Critic at New York Magazine. We were in the audience while he was filming and took advantage of the Q & A that ensued, which was cut out when this video was edited . I'm not going to list the exhibitions we visited soooooooo...check out the video to know where we were!
SEE VIDEO HERE:
It's always so much fun to run into Jerry in Chelsea and get his take on the exhibitions as well! He pumped the crowd at Gogo's on Murkami's process of making this large painting displayed in the side gallery and then the discussion got really lively!
Check back for highlights from the next gallery walk with the "additional back stories"... Oh Yeah!

What are your thoughts?

From ground level, the designs are invisible, and viewers have to climb the mock castle tower of the village office to get a glimpse of the work.
Rice-paddy art was started there in 1993 as a local revitalization project, an idea that grew out of
meetings of the village committee.
As the summer progresses and the plants shoot up, the detailed artwork begins to emerge...
Napolean on horseback can be seen from the skies, created by precision planting and months of planning between villages and farmers in Inkadate
The different varieties of rice plant grow along side each other to create the masterpieces...
In the first nine years, the village office workers and local farmers grew a
simple design of Mount Iwaki every year. However, their ideas grew more complicated and attracted more attention.
In 2005 agreements between landowners allowed the creation of enormous rice
A year later, organizers used computers to precisely plot planting of the four differently colored rice varieties that bring the images to life.

ALSO our gallery walk on March 21, the second Artists' Talk was with Melissa Meyer at Lennon Weinberg
I have always admired her spectacular use of color and her style of lyrical abstract painting. Her work is now in many private, corporate and museum collections.

Our Art Gallery Walk on March 21st was full of surprises... Not only did we have a multitude of wonderful new artwork to view, we also were fortunate to have 2 Artists' Talks... Anne Neely at the Lohin Geduld Gallery. At that time we were very fortunate because the video below was taken by one of our group members, who is also the blogger ART RAVELS. I truly enjoyed viewing this exhibition. The artist is very definite with every stoke of the application of paint. Her marks are deliberate and come together to make exceptional pixilated landscapes. Her use of color is dynamic as well as meditative.

Well, well...you never know what you will see or who you will run into strolling in CHELSEA. On Saturday, March 14, we had a lot of fun chatting it up with Artist Kenneth Snelson, Sculptor, at his retrospective exhibition at the Marlborough Gallery. He was kind enough to speak with our group and answer questions. Here is the link to the YouTube video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pXwXSUl3KU
There will be a Book Signing at Marlborough Gallery on Thursday, March 19th. All are welcome to attend.
Another highlight of our "walk" was seeing Video Artist, Tony Oursler's exhibition at Metro Pictures later in the day. Another extraordinary view into a remarkable perspective on "Smoking"... a looped video of cigarettes projected on stacks of metal poles placed very carefully in the main gallery. I am posting a link to the YouTube video:
