Xanda McCagg @ Art 101

If you haven't been there yet, you still have a few more days until February 6th. Xanda McCagg's paintings are shown in Art 101, a hidden in Williamsburg, attractive gallery space. What I particularly like at Xanda's paintings are her colors and how they are distributed. Her colors are bright but not too flashy, in perfect balance with the environments. And so inspiring during those long and dark New York winter days! The message is not always obvious - you need to concentrate to explore it. Or if you are confused, you can always ask her. She will be happy to explain you her "Sofa" series!
