Opening: Gertrude Abercrombie at Karma

This show marks the first New York exhibition of Gertrude Abercrombie’s work since 1952. A prolific American surrealist, Abercrombie often painted eerie landscapes, elongated bodies, looming moons, tall towers, and other creatures and objects that were significant to her. Abercrombie herself also figures prominently in her artwork, often presiding over rather haunting scenes. This show, which is organized by the writer and curator Dan Nadel, considers nearly three decades of the artist’s output.
Karma, 188 East 2nd Street, 6–8 p.m.
