"Sebastião Salgado: Genesis"-Peter Fetterman Gallery; "Jeremy Kidd: Temporal Excursions"-Leslie Sacks Contemporary

  Recently, I visited the Bergamot Station galleries and had the good fortune to catch two excellent photography shows.  However, the only thing these two exhibitions had in common was the medium.  One show was in black-and-white; the other was in color.  One show emphasized the sheer majesty of the natural world; the other delighted in the playful distortion of its subject matter.    The first show, located in the Peter Fetterman Gallery, is titled “Genesis” and is the first public U.S. show of photojournalist Sebastião Salgado.  “Genesis” features a combination of black-and-white nature photog...

"Piero Della Francesca in America" + Frick Collection- The Frick Collection

This past Saturday, I arose at the early hour of 5:30 am, caught the 6:15 SEPTA, and took the 8 am Greyhound to New York City. I’d been dying to get back to one of the greatest cities for art in the world, and I had a particular mission. As many times as I’d visited New York City in my youth on various museum adventures, I’d somehow neglected to pay a visit to the Frick Collection. For those of you not in the know, the Frick Collection is a small but incredibly distinguished collection of European paintings, sculpture, furniture, and decorative arts located in the former Frick Family home in...
