Here are the shows that I'm thinking about for my next "Gallery Chronicle" in The New Criterion (look for it in January)
Gallery, New York, through December 22.
An abstract painter of the old school who has for decades worked through a synthesis of cubism, expressionism, and minimalism. I last wrote about Willis here.
A Rough-hewn mid-twentieth-century sculptor who recalls Ellie Nadelman
Sanford Gifford, Frederick Church, Thomas Cole, and Milton Avery. 'Nuff said.
From the artist's mid-1970s collaboration with Anthony Caro (and the ghost of David Smith).
Ryder at Salander-O'Reilly Galleries through January 6
Three great outsider American artists who were modernists before their time. Albert Blakelock's moody little landscapes, on display at the Hirschl and Adler exhibit, were personal favorites at this year's New York Print Fair (look for more in my "NY fair chronicle" next spring).
