From the article:
>> The less-is-more tradition in American art is rich and varied. It stretches from the glorious frugalities of Shaker furniture and Amish quilts to the sleek orthodox Minimalism of Donald Judd’s box
sculptures and Agnes Martin’s horizontal-stripe paintings. And it also
accommodates the modest, plain-spoken sculptures and wall pieces of the
artist B. Wurtz.
At least check out the slide show....You might find your old LPs or your tossed hula-hoop (chuckles).
“B. Wurtz: Works, 1970-2011” is on view through Aug. 5 at Metro
Pictures, 519 West 24th Street, Chelsea; http://www.metropicturesgallery.com/
There is even more shown on the web site (see current exhibitions)
Plug for MaryAnn Kohl - Elementary teachers will want to check out her new book "Art with Anything". As you will see, art can be made with anything! and "real artists" do it, too.
P.S. My apologies to anyone who is bored by these New York Times posts (grin).I only post the "good stuff" -- well what I think is good.
