"I was reminded of one of my favorites elements of the Eldridge Street Synagogue: the indentations in its wooden floor boards that have been warped from over a century of use. Rather than repairing or replacing the wood, the Museum at Eldridge Street chose to preserve this worn element — a ghostly reminder of the synagogue’s earliest worshippers."

"Pat Passlof: The Brush Is the Finger of the Brain” at The Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation
"As a movement, abstract expressionism was dominated by patriarchy; men made most of the noise. But women artists such as Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, and Pat Passlof were also working, making paintings that equally belong to a survey of important artists at the time. Passlof, the long-term companion of the painter Milton Resnick, is the subject of this painting survey, which effectively communicates both the range and sensitivity of her outgoing, deeply accomplished art. Curated by the art writer Karen Wilkin in a former synagogue on Eldridge Street, which now houses The Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation (the space had been the couple’s home), the exhibition makes clear that Passlof was working in ways that can be covered by the generic term “the New York school.” She was a gifted colorist, someone whose feelings must be considered primary to her work. In this sense, she was not so far from the uninhibited brush of de Kooning, her teacher at Black Mountain College, with whom she became a good friend. Indeed, the variety of her nonobjective (and several figurative) imageries in this wonderful show look like occasions for working out color relations in a single compositional field."
