ERIK PARKER

No one really expects much from the summer group show here in NYC. Though, as always, several manage to stand out from the fold and satiate non-traveling locals until the limelight returns post-Labor Day. The biggie this summer is without a doubt “What Nerve!

ANNE PERCOCO

Did you know that, when an organ inside the human body is replaced, the native cells will commix with the non-native part to make the synthesis work fluidly? The prosthetic doesn’t always take, but the point is: nature is resilient and cooperative, even when humans re-direct its course. Local artist Anne Percoco has created a number...
