Sheep Invade a Gas Station in Chelsea!

by Gary Pini

As we noted in our Fall art show roundup, a gas station in Chelsea has been temporarily re-purposed as an art gallery. The old Getty station on the corner of 24th Street and 10th Avenue is currently the home of several sheep sculptures made of bronze and epoxy by the late French artist Francois-Xavier Lalanne, which will be on view until October 20. We went and took some pictures of the space so all you gallery hoppers know what to expect. Check them out, below.

Fill it up, please.

Regular or unleaded?

Don't cut the line!

Stock up on some goodies in the convenience store.

Fritos? Or perhaps a book about the artist, Francois-Xavier Lalanne.

And check the oil, please.

Eat some grass while you wait.
