It’s easy to like Polly Apfelbaum. Her exhilarating show at Alexander Gray pivots around the female head composition of the book cover “The Potential of Women” by the renowned Modernist graphic designer Rudolph deHarak. The show opens on the first floor with a series of brilliantly colored gouaches of deHarak’s faceted head motif that demonstrate Apfelbaum’s sound proficiency with color and composition. A visual delight awaits on the second floor where expansive handwoven rugs, featuring the theme design in deHarek’s original pale pink and brown colors, are framed by seventy stunning pieces of small, wall-mounted ceramic works. The visual communication of “The Potential of Women” is spot-on and provides a glimpse of the unlimited potential of this woman artist that makes one wanting to come back for more. At Alexander Gray through October 21.
