August is a slow month in the art world as almost everyone is on vacation, however there are a couple of see-worthy openings this week:

If you are near the Academy in TriBeCa on Friday night (Aug 20) then check out this pop gallery opening featuring Nick Kuszyk at 186 Duane St. between Greenwich and Hudson from 6-10 pm. Kuszyk makes intricate, sometimes Bosch-like paintings of his ever-evolving robot society.

Francesco Longenecker

On Saturday night (Aug 21), check out the opening of New Paintings curated by Academy alumna Renee Bovenzi. A snapshot of what artists are painting right now, it features many other alumni including Francesco Longenecker and Ali Banisadr. The show is at 560 Broadway, 3rd floor, Suite 305 and the opening is from 6-8 pm.

Aurel Schmidt

If you are out East on Saturday night, then stop by the Fireplace Project in the Springs for Aurel Schmidt's solo show, opening from 6-8 pm. Schmidt makes beautiful drawings composed of decay and rot. Her work is included in the 2010 Whitney Biennial.

Also, don't miss Glenn Horowitz in East Hampton with Will Cotton's amazing cake sculpture.
