About Town: Openings
There are some great openings on the horizon tonight for all of those in nyc and beyond.
ArtStar's own Micah Ganske (represented by RH Gallery) and his lovely wife Colette Robbins are both featured in a new exhibition at Lesley Heller Workspace: 'A Desert in the Ocean'. Opening Thursday June 30th, 6-9 pm at the Lesley Heller Workspace, 54 Orchard Street. Both Colette and Micah will also be featured in ArtStar's What Works pop-up show opening July 14th where 6 artist couples will explore the influence that artistic cohabitation has on their work. If you're not yet familiar with the work of these young artists, now if the moment to aquaint yourself with Micah's striking portraits and Colette's enigmatically antique graphite paintings.

Our friends at Gawker Artists are also hosting an opening tonight for Mark Mann: The Graflex Project @ Gawker at the Gawker Space, 7-9 pm. 210 Elizabeth Street, 4th fl. RSVP: email@example.com.
About the project: "A while back, Mark bought a beautiful 1950’s Graflex Super D camera and immediately put it to work. Using instant film, he shoots interesting people in locations where they convene. With his Union Square Project, he sets up a seamless white drop in the park and photographs the insanely diverse people who pass by; for Burlesque, Mark has gotten to know--and shoot--the extraordinary girls who perform this lost art in New York City; and most recently he brought the analogue charm of his Graflex to Gawker, where he photographed a cross-section of the staff."
And for those outside of New York, perhaps getting ready for Canada Day celebrations tomorrow, there's John Currin and Berlinde de Bruyckere opening at DHC/ART, 451 Rue St. Jean, Montreal, between the Belgian scupltor and the American painter, it's sure to be a genre-bending show.
