As I was already on the Lower East Side (and encouraged to do so by Endi), I decided to check out the opening reception to "Stupid Has a New Hero," new paintings by Charming Baker. I was not familiar with his work, and I was not able to tell from the few images that had been sent to me just how brilliant he is! But am I glad we checked it out! We were thoroughly charmed by his work. His titles are as darkly humorous as his skillful paintings. This one is entitled: "Just One of the Many Gods I Don't Believe In." My favorite title is "Love Is Never Putting All Your Eggs into One Bastard." The exhibit continues through the end of this month at NYSG 154 Suffolk.
