Fernando Botero: Beauty in Volume
Latin American master painter Fernando Botero, who has a term for his very own style “Boterismo,” is having a show of his work on 5th avenue inside the Crown Building. Botero is well known for depicting his bourgeois subjects as cheerfully plump people in relevant art historical poses. Besides his paintings, this show includes some of Botero’s rare sculptures. Check out the work of this Colombian great on the 7th floor of the Crown Building. They’re pretty iconic.

Federico Infante: The Space Between
There’s an opening reception this Thursday October 2nd from 6 to 8pm for Chilean artist Federico Infante at BDG gallery in Chelsea. His dreamy acrylics of usually female figures in hazy landscapes look like they’ve been taken from the throes of his subconscious and vague inklings of his waking life. Enjoy the opening this Thursday and RSVP to the Space Between.
