Fiendishly A Confectionery Dream! March 27, 2014 - Imagine this if Georges Seurat got sick of the paintbrush and decided to use a pastry bag with star tips and all - you get scrumptiously made art done by Lisa Alonzo. It may be war centric but we can make piece that this is really art in bloom to please our ever hungry palate for the sweet nothing. Yes, so lovely and delicious that it melts in your mouth. Now wipe that art off your face! Lisa Alonzo: Vanilla Scented Sovereignty / On View: March 27 - April 26, 2014 / Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday (10 am to 6 pm) / Claire Oliver Gallery. 513 West 26th Street.

Fiend Gets Overloaded With Color: March 27, 2014 - Life is better in HD and color too! Finally something to pop us out of our dreary winter greys and time for some serious wattage of the hue that makes us feel brand new. The dual shows are double the fun and color happy factor. Wheeeeeeeeee!!!!! Clayton Colvin: Put Down Your Stars & Tegene Kunbi: Malting Pot / On View: March 27 - April 26, 2014 / Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday (10 am to 6 pm) / Margaret Thatcher Projects. 539 West 24th Street.

There’s No Rhyme or Rhizome, Fiend! March 27, 2014 When the body of work is so varied and all of it excellent - where is the rhyme and “rhizome” for the entire show? Could it be the common shapes and the references the artist makes? Ah just shut up and enjoy the art for what it is. No academic high falutin’ stuff here. Matthias Bitzer: Saturnine Swing / On View: March 27 - April 26, 2014 / Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday (10 am to 6 pm) / Marianne Boesky. 509 West 24th Street.

Feels Like Spring / Summer, Fiend! March 20, 2014 - Oh finally, the change of season has come upon us - maybe not the temperatures yet but the art certainly did. Floating grids and suspended constructed art pieces that feels very light and finally something to breathe happy about. Time to put on the flip-flops and bask in the sun - maybe at the beach and not at the gallery. Have some respect bitches! Eva Berendes: Spring / Summer / On View: March 20 - April 26, 2014 / Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday (10 am to 6 pm) / CRG Gallery. 548 West 22nd Street.

Fiend Is Going Tribal on ART! March 20, 2014 - It is all at once primal, tribal even and downright delicious to behold. The drawings and multi-media work of Gene Mann are confections to the art senses. A tad Jackson Pollock but in a league of her own - it is worth going tribal on your ass if you miss this show! Gene Mann / On View: March 20 - April 26, 2014 / Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday (11 am to 6 pm) / Andrew Edlin Gallery. 134 Tenth Avenue. NYC, NY 10011 / Photography by: Olya Turcihin
Fiend Found The Triple Trifecta: March 12, 2014 - Δ A Triangle is one of the most powerful symbols since time immemorial. It represents divine power, portals to worlds unknown, and a catalyst for change. Three artists on the Lower East Side proved the numerous ways this shape can mean and appear to even change how one looks at this world. Δ - Patrick Grzelewski, Jamie Martinez and Brandon Wisecarver / On View: March 11 - March 29, 2014 / Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday (11 am to 6 pm) / Con Artist. 119 Ludlow Street. NYC, NY 10002 / Photography by: Olya Turcihin
Future Too Bleak, Fiend Gotta Wear Shades! March 4, 2014 - A street artist going into the direction of museum pedigree with visits from The Guggenheim and the MoMA following his opening. The multi-media work is a commentary on extreme surveillance, GMOs and all the other stuff that makes our future crazy scary. Marcus Jansen: Future Ground / Opened last March 4, 2014 / Gallery Hours: Monday - Sunday (12 to 7 pm) / Castle Fitzjohns Gallery. 98 Orchard Street. NYC, NY 10002 / Photography by: Max Noy
