Galerie Richard presents its second exhibition of work by the British artist William Bradley. "I'll Meet You There" features ten large colorful paintings inspired by the vibrancy of Los Angeles. 

Bradley begins work with small abstracts in watercolor which are scanned into the computer and then gradually transformed by the manipulation of saturation and contrast. These resolved designs are then meticulously repainted in oil on canvas. Many define his method as "abstract art about abstract art," by purposefully challenging traditional painting and the process involved.

The paintings are full of energetic colorways including shades of blue, green, pink, purple, red, orange and yellow. The exhibition will run through March 31. The gallery is located at 121 Orchard St.

Richard Taittinger Gallery presents the first major solo exhibition of works by Frances Goodman. The South African artist explores the emotions surrounding a woman's pursuit to be seen as desirable, confident and powerful in "Rapaciously Yours." 

The collection of work involves large sculptural designs which feature specific materials often associated with females, and through these, Goodman examines how self-ornamentation can serve as a source of empowerment for women. 

A large installation, "The Dream," is constructed of once-worn wedding dresses and fabrics that have been embellished with pearls, necklaces and earrings. the work also includes transcribes of several women's feelings about marriage. There is also a recording that plays conversations of women sharing their feelings of loss, satisfaction, desire, sexual power and ambition.

Denny Gallery presents "Yesterday So Fast," a solo exhibition featuring sculptural works by Lauren Seiden. The collection of pieces evokes an environment of suspended time, highlighting movements such as falling, collapsing and crunching, through the manipulation of unique materials. 

Seiden executes this effect by applying layers of graphic to a variety of surfaces, including steel mesh, thread, marble and water. She aims to illustrate a specific idea -- "yesterday's pressing present already weighed down by the momentum of tomorrow."
