A recent opening was Michael Yamaoka’s Saturation & Serenity at the Atlantic Gallery. “In photographs of intense color and almost palpable texture, Michael Yamaoka explores the tensions between color and form, surface and depth, the ravages of time and the timeless. The brilliant color, inherent, but often subdued in the original images, has been enhanced in these new works to depict a heightened reality.”
One of the highlights of this opening was the impromptu singing of New York, New York with accordion accompaniment. The artist, pictured on the right, was all smiles.

NY Art Beat is a great site to see upcoming events, complete with a snapshot of a piece of work on exhibit. For the novice art lover, like myself, this is particularly helpful in narrowing down the shows that match your tastes. The site filters the events by dates, location and medium.
