Sydney Blum has used the idea of Icarus flying towards the sun as the impetus of her new work. Here, she attempts to describe and create the motion and sensation of flying but in solid form: an incongruity that is not lost on her. She juxtaposes and distorts colors and lines and shapes in such ...

This exhibition of Italian artist, MARGHERITA SERRA
Hidden Bodies Warning, Ms. Serra's sculptural and relief art is beautiful, sensuous and plays havoc with the male gaze.
If you are able and interested, please come to the opening reception Thursday, March 3rd, 6:30-8pm at the Italian American museum, 155 Mulberry St at Grand, Little Italy, NYC

Exhibition of paintings, drawings, photography at Kim Foster Gallery NYC.
Introduction
  Antonio Petracca is an artist, painter, photographer residing in Battery Park City, NYC,across the street from the WTC. 
   His new Exhibition: "10" an overview of his work from 2001 to the Present is now on view to October 15th at Kim Foster Gallery, 529 W20th St NYC. The earliest work in this exhibition is "Beacons" a painting begun just before 9/11 and finished February 2002. To the artist, "The Beacons " signifies honor, respect, rememberance and peace.
   The newest work depicts the rebuilding that is now visible at Ground Zero. This sense of finally moving forward is articulated in "WT Corner V". the New World Trade emerges, the shape of a V and the reflection of a crane dominates the work. It is best expressed as the tension between the representation of the site and the symbolism  revealed by the manner in which it is cropped.
    In "10" Petracca has several examples of his work concerning Identity, specifically the "Italian-American". This work investigates stereotyping and  misrepresentation of the "other" in the media and in everyday life.. Also on view are recent prints, loosely investigating the "metaphysical" aspect of the image.
   The artist still lives in Battery Park City. He is gratified to see that this part of the city that never sleeps is finally being awakened.
   Antonio Petracca has had recent solo exhibitions at the Italian American Museum in NYC, the Garibaldi Meucci Museum and MCC in Rochester NY. His primary representation is with the Kim Foster Gallery in NYC.
 He has been awarded several grants and special projects including an MTA mural commission thru the New York Foundation for the Arts. His work is in the collections of the Museum of the City of New York, New York Historical Society, George Eastman House Museum of Photography and film, and the National September11 Memorial and Museum.

The Art Institute of Chicago is one of the greatest Museums in the USA. In my opinion, to visit Chicago and not visit the Art Institute is to not visit Chicago..
