The best painting-centric guide to art galleries in NYC, Brooklyn, and Queens / This month in Brooklyn we look forward to seeing “Frances Brady, Much More Together,” a collaborative collage project created by Marta Lee and Anika Steppe at Underdonk (opens on August 5) and Barbara Friedman’s solo show “The Hysterical Sublime” at FiveMyles (opens on August 19). On the LES, artist Ben Pritchard has organized “Summertime Rolls,” a lively group exhibition on view at Equity Gallery (closes August 12). **At Spencer Brownstone, check out Mira Dayal’s thoughtful reCAPCHA drawings and “Terminus,” a group show of artists whose works mark passages of space and time. In Tribeca, at Chart, artist Shona McAndrew has curated “Bellyache,” a friends-and-family show that includes many of her mentors and classmates from art school (closes August 18). Who would miss a show called “Ugly Painting” at Nahmad on Madison Avenue (closes in September)? Not me. Looking ahead, some of the galleries that have already closed for the summer have begun announcing their fall shows, so heads up: Charlene Von Heyl and Tomoo Gokita will be at Petzel in Chelsea, and Austin Thomas’s “City Scape” print project will be on view at Morgan Lehman. Fall openings begin the week of Tuesday, September 5. –Sharon Butler, Two Coats of Paint
