OK, for those of us who are done with all this political nonsense (i.e. we'll get screwed no matter who is in the White , Senate, Representatives House), here are some ideas on how to spend time in artistic pursuits:
On Friday, November 11, 2006 , Christine Taylor Patten will talk about her work at 4pm at the Drawing Center.
Later that day, there will be open reception for her exhibition of 261 drawings (November 11, 2006 – February 10, 2007)
Opening Reception: Friday, November 10, 6-8 pm
261 drawings consists of 260 one-by-one-inch crow quill and ink drawings on three-inch paper (the micro) and one 21-by-103.5-inch study (the macro). A progression of images begun with a single dot in space, the complete series of thousands of drawings evolves through gradual movement, each drawing in the sequence referring to the preceding one. While strictly non-referential, the drawings evoke cosmic imagery – swirling clouds, clusters of planets, wave patterns – and have been numbered as years, celebrating two millennia.

Another option would be to go and see John Currin at Gagosian Gallery.
