I just got back from Manhattan, attending Meikle Gardner's opening @ Serrano Contemporary in Chelsea.
The opening was packed and Meikle's work looked great. This is Meikle's first exhibit in NYC and he gave an exceptional accounting of himself!
The show runs until October 14.

Feelings give birth to the work of art and afterwards the response of the viewer will be affected by the viewer's own feelings. Ultimately the work can only be judged by feeling and not analysis.
Unfortunately technique is the easiest thing to respond to and is often used as a yardstick for judgment.
Meanings too, although part of a work of art, are only the starting point; the value of the work lies in its complex whole.
All of which suggests to me that both access to and assessment of a work of art can come only through familiarity and sympathy."

I also liked two very large paintings by Grace Hartigan and a nice blue and black painting by Lee Krasner that bore a heavy Matisse influence.
