After 17 years in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, Claire Oliver Gallery opened a new gallery space in Harlem on January 18 with an inaugural exhibition of artworks by Judith Schaechter. The exhibition, Almost Better Angels is from a chapter in Robert Sapolsky’s book Behave. The author concludes that human beings have guarded reasons for optimism when it comes to our biological nature driving our destiny. In these days of mass media’s ‘apocalypse-du-jour’, most artists have questioned their artistic motives and inspirations and have looked for a way to contribute to positive change. Judith Schaechter is among these enthusiastic voices. [More]
