I was recently guided through the elegant West 57th Street, Eleanor Ettinger Gallery by James Umphlett, an owner, and Orlando Chaparro, a manager. There's a second Ettinger Gallery in Chelsea on West 25th Street that I look forward to touring soon. The 24 West 57th Street building houses numerous art galleries, and I was thrilled to discover the Ettinger Gallery, as well as the works of several artists it represents.

The first artist I was drawn to was Dana Levin, a New England-based painter, classically trained in the finest art academies in Chicago, Florence, and in cities throughout the globe. She paints and draws figures, still life, landscapes, florals, and takes commissions for portraits. Her oil on panel self-portrait, "Milestone", is a fascinating introspective work. Her oil on linen interior, "Guest Room", has a warm inviting quality, with robust apples awaiting a welcome visitor. Her oil on linen figure, "Heaven", evoked Ingres' neoclassical style of extending the length of the arm or the position of the shoulder. Levin's oil on panel floral, "Calla Lilies Behind Curtain", contrasts the luscious pink lilies against simple black space and flowing white curtains. Ms. Levin's collection was a serendipitous surprise.

Among the other engaging artists, all of whose works can be explored below, I was especially drawn to Gabriela Gonzalez Dellosso's oil on linen, "The Red Shoes", as well as her oil on linen, "Homage to Anna Bilinska". The first shows a fascinatingly sad bride with bright red heels cast off on the floor, and the second shows a mesmerizing image of an artist with brushes and linen apron. Daniel Greene's oil on wood, "57th Street - Mosaic", as well as his oil on canvas, "City Hall - Brooklyn Bridge", were amazing replications of mosaic subway signs, detailed by the artist with painted lighting effects and iconic numbers and lettering. Michael John Hunt's acrylics on canvas, "A Feather" and "Ladders", riveted the eye to the interior of an old barn, in transition, and its very weathered effects.

The Eleanor Ettinger Gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, and is now featuring its International Spring Salon at both gallery locations, through April 30, 2011. For further information, call 212.975.7474.
