On Monday we decided to talk about Angel Orensanz, after all, he is the star of our next exhibition here in the Angel Orensanz Foundation. “Burning Bronzes” will debut on September 12th and you can read all about it here.

Now, onto the galleries of Lower East Side. Last week we featured the group exhibition going on inside DODGEgallery, this time we go a little west onto Bowery St, where the Charles Bank Gallery is located. They are presenting Inglorious Materials, a group exhibit featuring collage works by Scott Zieher, Ryan Dusso, Dan Mort, Cassandra C. Jones and Halsey Burgund. The name comes from  the fact that each artist uses collages supported by different mediums, like digital media, or paper.

Another exhibit from the Lower East Side gallery is Ryan James Macfarland – Tide Study, a collection of photographs that explore nature and its relation to us, how it affects us. The Florida photographer  shows stunning landscapes reducing all the complexities of nature into frames.

South onto Canal St, go inside 3A Gallery to appreciate another solo exhibition, this time the Paintings of Kurt Finsten, the Denmark-based artist uses color in a naked and unadulterated way, or as the poem used as a description for the exhibit in the gallery’s website says: “He loves their colours fresh and fine“.

Finally, on Forsyth St inside myplasticheart gallery , you can enjoy another group exhibition on the L.E.S. Signs of Apocalypse features 30 artists curated by Lou Pimentel, and is about, as he explains it: “The Mayans believe that the world will end in 2012, and with so many things going wrong in the world; tsunamis, earthquakes, global warming, flocks of birds/schools of fish mysteriously buying the farm; one can’t help but think about it. What do you consider to be a sign of the Apocalypse? I invited  some of my favorite artists to translate, and give life to the fears living in their heads.”
