Happy Art on a Rainy Weekend

A weekend of exterior rain encouraged a mirage of interior adventures; Chelsea Art Galleries-The colors of whimsy and delight caught my fancy on this gloomy, rainy weekend. For an indoor artificial woods theme decked in arbitrary colors and repetitive patterns, head to The Perry Rubenstein Gallery and enter Richard Wood’s Nature Show. The floors and walls are engulfed in animated line drawings and flowers from his Floral repeat series. If you are into German, Scandinavian or IKEA minimalism, then go next door to the Leo Koenig Inc. Gallery. Become entranced in Greg Bogin’s “happy place.” I really want some of Greg’s work-It made me happy. To partake in an art installment, head to 22nd Street and 10th Avenue. There is a two story sustainable bamboo piece of architecture. One can walk up its undulating spiral bamboo ramp, to, well, nowhere, and then walk back down. I was not certain that it would sustain me walking on it, thus I simply observed others walk to nowhere and back, happily. By Katrina Kelly
