Well, the Missus and I came down the city and here’s what we found (links and graphics to follow when the hardworking staff returns to the Global Worldwide Headquarters):
* The fabulous “Abstract Expressionism: Reloading the Canon” exhibit at Michael Rosenfeld Gallery. Personal favorites: Seymour Lipton’s “Dragon” and standout works by Adolph Gottlieb, Lee Krasner, and Richard Stankiewicz (although just about everything there is excellent)
* “American Modernism” at Spanierman Gallery, which has too many knockout paintings to detail, although Max Weber’s “Joel’s Cafe” will stick with you for a long time
* “Warhol Soup” at Armand Bartos Fine Art, a collection of Campbell’s cans to write home about
* “Frankenthaler: East and Beyond” at Knoedler & Company. Don’t miss the to-die-for bronze screen on the second floor
* “Good People” at the Manhattan Theatre Club, a new play by David Lindsay-Abaire set mostly in South Boston and starring a riveting Frances McDormand, along with Estelle Parsons, who almost steals the show but not quite.
More (we’re glad to say) tomorrow.
