Opens Jan 6, 6-8p: “Precisionist Casual” Sharon ButlerPocket Utopia, 191 Henry St., NYC (bt Clinton and Jefferson, F to East B’Way)solo exhibition of new paintings. Butler finds herself pulled between the worldly confines of the Precisionists of the early twentieth century and the fey liberation of today’s Casualist abstraction. Like the Precisionists, Butler is drawn to urban settings, structures, and HVAC architecture – all in evidence from the windows of her Bushwick studio. Yet, like the Casualists, she seeks a mode of presentation that evokes more than the triumphs and laments of industrialization that earlier artists have already plumbed so well, embracing those inconsistent realities and searching for new ones. - thru Feb 17
