To everyone who has struggled through another academic year, final crits are over, so the time has come to get out and see some shows.

February is a short month, which makes visiting all the shows that much harder, but before the onslaught of NYC art fairs  in March (the 6th through 10th), try to visit some galleries, either IRL or online. After all, we can’t spend every minute obsessing over Adam Schiff’s investigations, the House Committee  hearings, SC Mueller and the Russia probe, team Trump indictments, impeachment progress, … read more… “Two Coats Selected Gallery Guide: February 2019”
