What Can Happen When A Seller of Art Plays Curator
IF there is one negative aspect to the visual arts environment in the New York region, it is in the exhibitions organized by commercial gallery dealers to take place in educational or nonprofit spaces. It may be difficult for regional museums to raise capital for their exhibition programs, or to get serious loans, but ethical lines can sometimes be blurred when dealers play curator. This was brought home again recently by a visit to Presence of Mexico, an exhibition of the work of Mexican modern masters and several contemporary artists at Castle Gallery at the College of New Rochelle in New York. There are several good names and some thoughtful artwork, but the exhibition organizer, an art dealer, Reyna Henaine, has chosen to include works (almost a third, perhaps) from her gallery stock, and most of them are listed for sale. That is not right.

Art in Review; Rosa Loy -- Neun Wegs (Nine Ways)
David Zwirner 525 West 19th Street, Chelsea Through July 28 Rosa Loy seems to be one of the few hot young Leipzig painters who is not a man -- a pleasant change of pace -- and the canvases in her first solo show in New York exude an easy command. Still, they bear an undue resemblance to those of the best-known artist of the Leipzig group, Neo Rauch, who happens to be her husband and studiomate. The similarities include stylized quasi-illustrational figures, retro fashions, disorienting settings and rich, complementary color schemes.. Roberta Smith reviews paintings by Rosa Loy at David Zwirner gallery (M)
ART: A NOSTALGIC VISIT TO THE SURREAL CITY
BLEND diluted Surrealism with watered-down Cubism and a touch of the satirical German precisionism known as the New Objectivity. Throw in references to Renaissance masters. Shake it up, and you have the 30s American brew called Magic Realism. In it, the close rendering of facts - buildings and streets and everyday events - is disrupted by odd juxtapositions and pungent dream displacements. Mild example: an urban rooftop scene precisely delineated by George Ault in which a woman looks over a parapet at the cityscape. But she is nude, wearing only her shoes. By means of this oblique language, certain 30s artists expressed, in the angst of the Depression, their feelings of personal, political and social upheaval. Some of them - now dubbed Social Surrealists - actually used the grotesqueries of Surrealism to make out-and-out attacks on the social order. Others - the Magic Realists -worked in a more cryptic, enigmatic style with only vague, conceptual allusions. But for both, the city scene, a wild meld of fantasy and reality in itself, was the perfect subject.
