Back to School in Art-land

Still recovering from Burning Man, I dusted off, got my hair did, and managed only a few shows on Wednesday, the traditional back-to-school day. On the Lower East Side, Franklin Evans opened the fall season at Sue Scott Gallery.

With pieces of tape forming a transparent room within the gallery, bubble-wrapped mounds squishing underneath one's feet, and pattern blossoming everywhere, Evans's show would have been the perfect summer feat: color, fun, and playfulness.
Thank god we grown-ups can still appreciate these elements come fall.
