New Haven in New York

New Haven in New York:

Our friend Joe Sheftel, formerly an art adviser, just opened a gallery in the Lower East Side, and his inaugural show features three Yale MFA graduates: Alex Da Corte, Adam Henry, and Rory Mulligan. The exhibition, Specifically Yours, brings together painting, sculpture, and photography contemplating materiality and the role of the sculptural object on perception. Enthralled as we were, we began to wonder how many Yale MFAs were exhibiting in New York now and in the near future. Our list of shows follows.
