New York!  Time’s a-wastin’ if you want to see two great exhibits underneath one roof.  Until June 26, 2011 at Sloan Fine Art in New York, you can see Aaron Smith’s “Coterie of the Wooly-Woofter” as well as Anthony Iacono’s “Victor Victoria.”  The best way to describe Aaron Smith’s portraits in a word is “juicy.”  Smith has painted Victorian and Edwardian gentleman using very rich and vivid colors and each view will make you reconsider the “straight and narrow” back story we’ve been fed about these generations gone by.

Anthony Iacono’s exhibit “Victor Victoria” repurposes androgynous Victorian miniatures, incorporating a variety of found and handmade elements to create fetishized, narrative portraits.  Using objects such as Play-Doh, toy fragments and collectibles, you’ll find your mind trapped in the worlds Iacono has created long after you’ve left Sloan Fine Art.

Both exhibits close on June 26, 2011.

Sloan Fine Art is located at 128 Rivington Street in Manhattan.

Sloan Fine Art on the Lower East Side in New York has a great show that just opened.  “Nice To Meet You” is a mixed-media extravaganza whereby 9 artists whose works are admired by Sloan Fine Art were asked to invite two artists of their choice to show in this exhibit.  The result is 27 works of art by very diverse artists.  The works in this exhibit are very affordable (ranging from $300 – $4,500) so whether you are a long time art aficionado or are just building your collection, this is a great exhibit to check out.  “Nice To Meet You” runs from now until July 31, 2010 at Sloan Fine Art which is located on 128 Rivington Street.

After the jump, see a few more images from this cool exhibit.
