Bushwick Sunday

Two Coats of Paint (See link) and Raggedy Ann's Foot had the same idea: a Bushwick Sunday. Raggedy Ann's Foot ventured late, after 5 PM  in time to catch Carol Salmonson and Stephen Truax's shows at STOREFRONT Bushwick (See link) and Kristin Jensen's Norte Maar exhibition (See link). 

Norte Maar hosted a salon from 4 to 6 PM, where vinyl 45s were played by an utterly devoted, high-spirited DJ,whose name I do not know. When was the last time you saw a Ricky Nelson 45, or Paul McCartney's RAM? Amazing. Here, she is seen in action, with Kristin Jensen's installation It's Nobody's Fault. Scroll down for more Jensen.

Truax: lightly penciled grids on stretched w/c paper able to hold the translucence of scraped gouache and watercolor.

Shows missed in these series of posts: Four Paintings at Regina Rex, and in Chelsea, the Alice Neel and Yan Pei-Ming at Zwirner. Never mind everything uptown! But as the rain pours down this morning, and the light is pearly gray, I exult in having experienced an exuberant Bushwick Sunday.
