Openings at BCB Art in Hudson
Saturday night, two new shows at BCB ART—“Black, White & Blue, new paintings by Bart Gulley” and “Around Here: 9 Local Landscapes by Sasha Chermayeff”— drew art world cognoscenti from both sides of the river and Massachusetts to the Hudson gallery. Despite harrowing weather, nearly 250 people turned out to see Gulley’s new paintings, which combine dynamic hard-edged geometrics with more lyrical sections in his customary painterly style. In a departure from Chermayeff’s usual abstract work, her landscapes attempt the impossible — to capture the elusive “perfect day.” Both shows are up through November 30.
