I’m pretty into Jim Denevan these days.
Peter Fischli’s and David Weiss’s three shows at Matthew Marks include Clay and Rubber, “sculptures of everyday objects- a dog dish, a drawer, a hiking boot, an ottoman- cast in black rubber or modeled in clay.”

A nice article today in the Times about Carmen Herrera, the 94 year-old painter who finally “made it.”
Building on a Cliff, a group show featuring the work of Matt Connors, Arturo Herrera, and Merlin James, will run from December 10 – January 23 at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. While the majority of their work is drawing and painting, they also create pieces “that blur the definitions of specific art practices, creating hybrid works; painting-sculpture, photography-installation, painting-installation.”
