Viva Change

The downtown mainstay Philip Slein Gallery, rooted for nearly ten years on Washington Avenue, moves to the Central West End this spring. The new space, at 4735 McPherson Avenue (formerly the William Shearburn Gallery), will be christened tonight with two exhibits: New Paintings by Jackie Saccoccio and a select survey of Slein's stable of artists, to include work by Max Cole, Erik Spehn and Michael Byron, among others. Saccoccio peruses every variety of frenetic gesture -- pouring, dripping, diffusing and dragging her Day-Glo palette over the canvas. It's eye-popping stuff that still wrestles with the subtle, unutterable language of abstraction, weaving in moments of white-washed reprieve amid its otherwise wild terrain. The work's ebullient spirit no doubt sets the tone for Slein's re-arrival.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 18. Continues through June 30, 2012
