From August 4th to September 7th, Niki de Saint Phalle's "Californian Diary" will be on view at Nohra Haime Gallery. Niki de Saint Phalle, whose work often reflected her relationship with California, is exhibiting nine silkscreens that visually convey her experiences with California. Phalle first became known as an artist from her "target paintings" where she would shoot at plastic sculptures that had paint bags embedded in them with a .22-caliber rifle.


Showcasing at the Parrish Art Museum, German visual artist, Andreas Gursky, is known for his large-scale digital photographs of urban and natural landscapes. With its scale, meticulous details and colors, his large-scale works successfully heighten the viewer's relationship with the urban landscapes. The Parrish Art Museum will be covering Gursky's photographs from the past 30 years.
