From Artnet News:
"Now age 92, feminist artist Gloria Garfinkel is enjoying the largest New York City solo show of her 70-year-career, curated by Mara Williams, chief curator of Vermont’s Brattleboro Museum and Art Center. The six large-scale mixed media paintings on view at A.I.R. literally have hidden depths—Garfinkel has built in assemblage shadow boxes with hinged doors into the surface of each work. The viewer is invited to open these treasure troves, each a cabinet of curiosities with themes including beauty, vice, and religion.
Location: A.I.R. Gallery, 155 Plymouth Street, DUMBO, Brooklyn Price: Free Time: Wednesday–Sunday, 12 p.m.–6 p.m. by appointment
Gloria Garfinkel, Secrets 6 (Government), 2004. Collection of the Haggerty Museum of Art, Milwaukee.
