One of my days a week here at Purchase is actually spent in Manhattan looking through the art world first hand.  Yesterday was spent in Chelsea which is a law to itself with every other door being a gallery.  Unlike other cities I have been to with large art scenes this gallery structure is different with no other real business tied to it.  If you are in Chelsea I guess you are stating your claim as being in the art world.  Quite a different feel one that I am no where close to getting my head around..

We saw plenty of new works by all generations of artists however it was Gordon Moore's painted/collage work that really stood out for me.  His work is being shown at Betty Cunningham Gallery.  Here are a couple of tasters of his work.

On my travels it was also really good to see some of Joseph Beuy's 7000 Oaks work around the streets of Chelsea.
