Walling Out


No matter how old you get, you’ll always get a little transgressive thrill from making marks on a clean white wall. At Barbara Gladstone’s two Chelsea galleries, there’s a lot of pleasure to be derived from the in situ work of 16 artists who have been invited to dirty up the room in “Hello Walls,” a mini-survey of the medium. Here’s an exclusive first look.

“Hello Walls” runs from June 26 – July 31 at New York’s Barbara Gladstone galleries, 515 W. 24th St. and 530 W. 21st St.
