TGIF (almost)! Have an arty party (last chance/closings)!

Friday take in these art exhibits before they're gone April 12:

  • Blane de St. Croix and Carlos Motta @ Smack Mellon Gallery, free. The former, a model of the U.S.-Mexican border, is recommended by New York magazine as "lovingly detailed" and "one of the more pointedly poetic and political sights in New York" (love that alliteration). Take the F to York St., A or C to High St. and hoof it to 92 Plymouth, Brooklyn.

  • David Malek's bright geometrics @ Smith-Stewart gallery. Take the F, V to 2nd Ave. or the J, M, Z to the Bowery. Get there by 6 p.m. Then walk the four blocks to the New Museum of Contemporary Art (235 Bowery, open 'til 9) for its new exhibit The Generational: Younger Than Jesus. (Not free, but $8 if you still have student ID, $12 otherwise.)

  • Long Island City: Vanessa Beecroft @ Deitch Projects: iiinteresting. 4-40 44th Dr. and Home Sweet Home (looks like quite the opposite, actually -- ah, irony) @ Dorsky gallery at 11-03 45th Ave. Take the V, E to 23rd; 7 to 45th/Court Sq.; G to Court Sq./LIC.

  • Seonna Hong, Caroline Hwang, Saelee Oh @ Sloan Fine Art (ends 4/11). I don't know much about art, but I dig this exhibition. Not pretentious. Take the F, J, M, Z to Essex/Delancey or V to 2nd Ave., walk to 128 Rivington (@ Norfolk). Closes at 6.

  • Susan Rothenberg @ Sperone Westwater. Works titled "Flesh" and "Three Parts" are a good hint. Take A, C, E, L, 1, 2 or 3 to 14th. Walk to 415 W. 13th. Other galleries in the same building and nearby, so make a night of it (Bumble and Bumble there, too, if you're in need of a haircut!). Ends 4/11.

  • Zoe Leonard @ The Hispanic Society of America. Derrotero means ship itinerary in Spanish. Take the 1 to 157th or C to 155th and walk to 613 W. 155th St.
