Hello 2021! Thanks, again, readers, for your generous contributions to the Two Coats of Paint 2020 fundraising campaign. An invitation: Among the exhibitions opening this month, my show of paintings at Theodore:Art (56 Bogart Street in Bushwick) called “Morning in America” opens on Friday, January 15. I’ll be there from 12-6 pm, so please stop by and say hello. We will be wearing masks and keeping our distance. Other notable shows opening this month include Fawn Krieger at Soloway, Mike Ballou at Studio 10, Ben Pritchard at Equity Gallery, Kathy Cantwell and Brooke Nixon at The Painting Center, Dan Walsh at Paula Cooper, and Mira Schor at Lyles & King. We are optimists for what lies ahead. Fingers crossed for a peaceful transition of power on January 20 and widespead Covid vaccinations thereafter. –Sharon Butler
