Installation view

On paper, the idea of blanketing the walls of a gallery with a fine layer of gold glitter reads as a deeply horrendous idea. But that's precisely what curator (and friend) Amber Vilas did for "Neon Rainbow," her one-night, ten-artist show in a subterranean crate shop at the corner of SoHo's Crosby and Jersey Streets. And it worked — at least this one time, lending a welcome background ebullience to work that included an angular polystyrene relief by Tamara Zahaykevich, a small acrylic on paper of a hazy, sun–filled sky by Roger White, and a tantalizing oval caked with pale pink paint by Jim Lee, whose work, one suspects, could withstand even the most radical exhibition experiments.
