It’s Valentine’s Day, and what better way is there to impress your date than by showing off your cultural knowledge? Explore gallery exhibition openings happening near you! In Chelsea, NY, stop by Tracy Williams Ltd. for the opening of (I’m Your) Hoochie Choochie Man a group exhibition named after the Muddy Waters song. This show brings together Chicago-based artists David Leggett, Tim Nickodemus, Rachel Niffenegger, and Trew Schriefer and runs from February 14 to March 16, 2013.

Just a few blocks away, on 25th street, Nancy Margolis Gallery presents their first exhibition of the New Year, Fun and Whimsy from February 14 to March 23, 2013. Artists Rachel Bone, Benrei Huang, Tom Ngo, and Alex Paik play off of this adventurous theme, presenting works full of color and imagination. Benrei introduces us to the fictitious world of Nini the rabbit, while Bone turns familiar scenes into imaginative interpretations that are reminiscent of children’s books and Scandinavian Folk Art.
