As people celebrate Passover, Holy Week and Spring Break, the art galleries in Chelsea and around town are welcoming April with a wide variety of new shows. Those "Gallery Closed For Installation" signs  - don't they always make you want to peek around and see how it comes together? Well, Mark did...

James Kennedy (above) was caught in the act of perfectly placing  a work by Bonnie Rychlak, whose solo show opens Thursday with a reception from 6-8 at The Viewing Room (Chelsea's annex of East Hampton's Surface Library) on the 4th Floor of 551 West 21st Street.

She had help deciding on the perfect array for of Liz Engelhardt’s "Silentscapes" -  from her sister Maggie -  via Skype. You can see what they came up with at the opening reception, Thursday from 6-9.

While we have not been given a sneak peak of Tim Linn's exhibition of sculpture and works on paper "Of Necessity" at Heskin Contemporary 443 West 37th St., given what we have seen of his "painterly architecture" and this vibrant gallery, we would be April Fools not to get to get a first look during the reception, Thursday from 6-9.
