I made it over to the art galleries on Chung King Road in Chinatown this weekend. I have always enjoyed walking around looking at art in that area, but I and am usually unimpressed. This weekend there was a great deal of wonderful things to see. There were three galleries that have exceptional work on display.
First were the colorful New Works in Pastel by Stan Kaplan and Eric Niebuhr at the Mary Goldman Gallery. I have always thought of this gallery as a leader amongst the many on Chung King Road.
Next were the stunning paper sculptures in Organic Transformed by Rachel Portenstein at LMAN Gallery.
Finally, there were a series of captivatingly detailed drawings from Body Swallows World by Aurel Schmidt at Peres Projects.
