On the subject of neighborhood happenings...Open Studios

It's the 14th annual building wide open studios at Clemente Soto Velez Cultural & Education Center on Saturday May 15 th from 4-8 pm. That's the cool old building on the corner of Rivington & Suffolk with the scaffolding. The entrance is at 107 Suffolk St. They have three floors of artist studios. It's definitely worth checking out if you like that kind of thing (we do!). It's also coincidentally the last day of our current exhibition so why not make a day of it on the LES? You can get more info about the open studios at the Artist Alliance Inc web site - and you can get ideas of places to eat and drink in the neighborhood from our links on the right side of the page.

There's a doll party on my desk!

Dame Darcy sent us a new batch of dolls and I just love the way they look all lined up on the desk.

Shows we recommend 5/1/10

The arrival of the ever fabulous Mark Ryden got the Sloan Fine Art staff out of the gallery and enjoying some shows.

Aside from our own fantastic Kristen Schiele and Clare Grill exhibitions, I highly recommend Mark Ryden at Paul Kasmin, Julie Heffernan at PPOW and Mamma Andersson and Jockum Nordstrom at David Zwirner.

Special thanks to Paul Kasmin and Harley & Daniel for their generous hospitality this week!

Here are a few pics from Ryden's opening (borrowed from Kirsten Anderson and Adam Wallacavage). There's a post on Jodavid Harris' blog with tons of great pictures at
