jeff bailey show 2

Saturday in a fit of cabin fever, I went to Chelsea to see a show. Jeff Bailey’s jewel box gallery is far over on 11th ave, but the warmth and intelligence of is small show entitled Simple Means is extraordinary. Pairing contemporary work with items from the Mount Lebanon Shaker community, contemporary art never loved so righteous and items made by Shaker hands never looked so “right”. In that one room, on a freezing cold day, the glow of making things held sway.
