Two very playful, yet very different shows opened last Saturday night in the far-west gallery district in Greenwich Village. One was a Rob Pruitt
extravaganza filling the more-spacious-than-ever quarters of Gavin Brown’s enterprise
at 620 Greenwich Street as well as the Maccarone gallery down the block. The other was a career retrospective of Gene Beery, yet another forgotten talent resurrected by dealer Mitchell Algus, at his new Algus Greenspon Gallery at 71 Morton Street.
