A long-awaited event to start the new season: the third solo exhibition of works by Jules de Balincourt.

A dreamy set of paintings from Italian artist, Lorella Paleni. A past student at both SVA and Columbia, Paleni mixes contemporary psychedelia with traditional painting that results in works that are both abstract and figurative, almost recreating the double exposure trend we have been noticing recently, but with a paintbrush.
