New York Can’t Miss Gallery Openings This Week - by Andrew Russeth

Nicholas Buffon, "Lily Pad Paintings," at Callicoon Fine Arts, 27 Lower Main Street, Callicoon, New York, through October 17, opening Saturday, September 4, 5–7 p.m.

This summer, NADA’s County Affair lured art fans to the quaint Callicoon Creek Park, right on the border of New York and Pennsylvania along the Delaware River, for a day of fun in the country. Now, local gallery Callicoon Fine Arts is inviting everyone back to the small town (population 3,052), this time to Lower Main Street, to view the work of Nicholas Buffon, a scrappy young MFA student who is painting large, messy canvases with an admirable abandon. His work also graces the front of the current issue of New York music guide Showpaper, which he has covered with controlled bursts and smears of color. It might be a landscape, but it’s hard to tell. Arrive by 6 p.m. to catch a special performance.
