"Recession Rejuvenations" at Bruno David Gallery is one of those breezy group shows that one sees in the summertime months: loads of works, all quite easy on the eyes, connected only by their recentness, their relatively small scale and, in some cases, affordable price tags (it is a recession, after all ...)
It's nice to see works by David's impressive roster of artists shown together; the result is eclectic and buoyant.
Don't miss the works by Christina Shmigel, Jill Downen, Cindy Tower, Daniel Raedeke, Carmon Colangelo and a lovely drawing by Martin Brief.
Video works by Dickson Beall, William Morris, Brett Williams, Van McElwee and others are also on view.
