South Fork Represents at Armory Week

New York’s Armory Week includes numerous fairs throughout the city
"A Jar of Forsythia" was painted by Jane Freilicher in her New York studio in 1990.

A show of work by Jane Freilicher will be presented this week by the Tibor de Nagy Gallery at the Art Dealers Association of America’s "Art Show" fair in New York City.

Ms. Freilicher, who died last year, was not only a “painterly realist‚” in the words of her gallery, but an inspiration for several poets of the era, including Frank O’Hara and John Ashbery, who were also her friends. She was known for the still lifes that she often placed near her windows, showing the view outside her Water Mill studio.

The exhibition is part of New York’s Armory Week, which runs through the weekend and includes numerous fairs throughout the city. The Armory Show will take place at the piers; the dealers association's fair is at the Park Avenue Armory.

The folks who have brought Art Market Hamptons to Bridgehampton the past few Julys are offering a new fair this year, Art on Paper. That show will take place in downtown Manhattan on Pier 36, on the East River. Two East Hampton galleries, Eric Firestone and Birnam Wood, will be represented at the fair. Firestone will show Bast, Henry Chalfant, Albert Chamillard, Tseng Kwong Chi, and James Ulmer. Birnam Wood will bring work by Beauford Delaney, Sam Francis, Margaret Garrett, Susan Grossman, William John Ken­nedy, Robert Rauschenberg, Michael Rich, Katherine Ryan Roth, and Aurelia Wasser. The fair will be open daily through Sunday.

Harper’s Books has also been in the city this week. Its Rare Book Room, a  pop-up gallery, is at the Carlyle Hotel; it will continue Thursday from noon until 8 p.m. before closing. Featured are “unique artists’ interventions by Harmony Korine, Justin Adian, and Jordan Wolfson, alongside a selection of rare books, ephemera, and Japanese magazines from the 1970s.” There will also be art on view by Sadie Laska, Brad Phillips, Richard Prince, and Matthew King. Those attending need to ask at the Carlyle’s front desk for the Harper’s Books suite.
