While collaborations may be less frequent in the visual arts than they are in musical media, like, say, making hip-hop records, they do exist. One such hookup can be observed this weekend at the Toyroom Gallery, which hosts its monthly not-second-but-third-Saturday show this weekend in its Curtis Park digs, on the alley off 24th Street, just north of Second Avenue. The Lawn & Garden Show: What’ll They Grow? features John Stuart Berger, a dark but whimsical painter, mixing it up with Pete Bettencourt, an artist with deep roots in graffiti art. The show runs from Thursday, November 13, until Saturday, November 15, each evening until “late,” whatever that means.
