“Safe Keeping,” 2012 (oil on canvas) by Joe Conera at Donzella 20th Century Gallery. Although it looks like mounds of books, the painting is actually of stacks of money.

One of two white painted-wood wall sculptures by California artist Aaron Kllc at Caira Mandaglio.

Kllc’s work bears a striking resemblance to works by acclaimed artist Louise Nevelson whose wood assemblages were far more ambitious in composition and execution.

“Helice,” circa 1970 (tapestry) by Sonia Delaunay at Vojtech Blau.
