Anton Kern Gallery

16 East 55th Street Midtown

Two large scale, colorful exhibits at Anton Kern gallery are fun for all ages to check out. Richard Hughes instills wonder and magic in meticulous facsimiles of discarded object. Two astonishingly replicated tree trunks appear to have eyes.  A novelty decorative cat sculpture found in a junk shop sits before a large-scale fabric replica of a small paper eye test–also featuring a cat–that was used to train people on how to adjust their eyesight after emerging from a nuclear bunker.

A survey of NYC-artist Chris Martin features eight foot paintings smothered in ceiling tar, massive Griffins on tin foil, ten-foot drop cloth paintings inspired by Hilma af Klint and smaller paintings nodding to Jungian psychology, psychedelics, the Catskills landscape, and fatherhood.
