Zürcher Gallery’s Salon Zürcher is to Armory Week what Groundhog day is to Spring. The gallery shares its premises with venues from the neighborhood and beyond in a popup boutique mini fair that often yields delights, and this year is no exception, with Marie Finaz of Paris, for instance, offering the work of two exquisite outsider artists, Jill Gallieni and Marie-Rose Lortet. From Hudson, New York, Galerie Gris commanded a tour de force of a pairing in the inner sanctum of Zürcher’s Bleecker Street premises, with the radically informal abstraction of Marina Adams and Lizzie Scott. The irregular shapes of dazzling color in Adams look like they want to flop onto the floor in luxuriating heaps; the works of Scott actually do just just.   Look out later this week for showings of Adams at Art on Paper with VanDeb Editions, and Independent where her new book will be featured by Karma.
