Liz Larner / John Chamberlain

For some metal madness this weekend go to Chelsea and check out the Tanya Bonakdar Gallery LA artist Liz Larner explores color and sculpture mostly with metal materials. The pieces invite you to get closer and closer as colors seem to change and disappear in a subtle dance. One structure entitled "6" looks like it would be very at home in an imaginary playground. Show ends March 19th, so get over there soon. Across the street at The Paula Cooper Gallery in Chelsea check out John Chamberlain's show. His sculptures inhabit the gallery like large friendly giants made from colorful crushed metal. Your kids will recognize car parts like fenders all smashed together into these massive dramatic forms. The show is up till April 2nd.
