GALLERIES-CHELSEA

SIOBHAN LIDDELL

The artist specializes in gossamer. In this ethereal installation, she strings orange and yellow thread in undulating arcs across the gallery-visitors must weave under this fragile canopy to get to the delicately messy drawings in the back, which blend the vocabulary of maps (contour isobars, latitude lines, perspectival leaps) with playful and simple presentations using pen, paper, and string. Through Aug. 9. (CRG, 535W. 22nd St. 229-2766.)
