Valentine hearts painting

 I went out to Ridgewood today and caught the last day of "4 Who Paint," a group show at Valentine that features work by Lauren Collings, Barbara Friedman, Gili Levi, and Shelley Marlow. Although I didn't discern a clear curatorial premise, the paintings look good, bouncing ideas off each other and reveling in their sheer painterliness. In the smaller front gallery, Patricia Satterlee presents a suite of charming small paintings comprising iconic green shapes that seem almost prehistoric, like old pottery shards or agroglyphs seen from above.








In the gift shop, Fred Valentine hung one of his own small paintings. He started painting small-scale abstractions as a joke, but you can tell he sort of fell in love with the process.
