Greetings, friends! Have newly returned from another month in rehab, occasioned by a fall, and not entirely satisfied with the way my legs have turned to jelly by spending so much time lying in bed. Am working hard getting both my balance and my endurance back, as well as finding means of transport other than ruinously-priced taxicabs. Sorry I didn't get to "Chroma" at Upsilon, as I understand it featured work by Susan Roth, and I haven't seen her work in so many moons that I no longer have any idea what it looks like. Am also sorry that I will probably miss the Jules Olitski centennial show at Yares, though I understand it's quite a show and its run has been extended to February 11. But am hoping to see the next exhibition at Yares (Larry Poons)? And I understand that in March paintiings from the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation will be on view at Gagosian. As that artist kept back some of her finest works instead of selling them, that should be a particular.y worthy show.
