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.
