Chelsea wrap-up

I didn't get to see as much as I had hoped (missed the Laurie Anderson piece), since there is always more to do in the studio. I did get to the "New Found Land" show at Priska C. Juschka, some stand out pieces: Amy Rathbone's piece of holes in the wall and little sticks coming out from the wall producing multiple shadows. Falling away from the piece are these lovely little ink drawings of crescents (look like finger clippings or paper cut outs) which end in a pile at the floor. Tucker Schwarz created some intricate and lovely pieces of photos and threads, and a simple piece of multicolored threads strung like a web in the corner. Also of note Carolyn Salas' jewel toned soft sculptures of oases (is that the plural of oasis?).
Another show entitled "Mud" at Dinter Fine Art, featured works in ceramics, and a few works that looked like ceramics, but were in fact painted styrofoam. It begs the question of the difference between Craft and Fine Art (capitals mine)...
