Last Call: NYC Gallery Exhibitions

Joan Mitchell, Linden Tree, 1977
Oil on canvas, 37 x 28 3/4 inches

Once upon a time, the art world would fall into a gentle slumber from the end of the July through early September.   Those good ol' days have been over for sometime now and many a great exhibition can still be viewed straight through to the Friday before Labor Day.

Here are my recommendations for galleries in Chelsea, SoHo, Midtown and the Upper Eastside.

Tara Donovan, Untitled, 2014
Styrene index cards, metal, wood, paint and glue
12 feet 5 1/2 inches by 22 feet 4 inches x 22 feet 11 1/2 inches

"Group Show," at David Zwirner, 537 West 20th St., through August 15.
"TeamLab" and "Tara Donovan," at Pace, 508-10 and 534 West 25th, through August 15.
