Spring Arts Preview: Top 10 Gallery Shows
By Andrew Russeth
‘Raymond Pettibon: Surfers 1987–2012’ at Venus Over Manhattan
April 3–May 17
This show at Venus Over Manhattan, the gallery owned by Observer columnist Adam Lindemann, focuses on the draftsman’s most thrilling series: fearsome, engulfing waves on which lone, brave surfers ride, tempting death. More fine news: Mr. Pettibon will apparently take a break from writing vitriolic tweets to make a new wave drawing directly on the gallery’s walls.
