New York—With so many interesting geometric shapes coming off the fashion runways in prints, patterns and accessories, it’s a huge plus that we’re finding this in the art world as well.

This holiday weekend, scroll through the Resort 2014 shows, then make your way to some art shows around town for a dose of bright color in graphic shapes.

Start downtown on the Lower East Side and check out Eamon Ore-Giron’s paintings at Nicelle Beachene Gallery. The artist uses bright matte paints to create geometric shapes onto raw linen. Through July 12.

Then make your way to MoMA in upper midtown, where you’ll see pieces from 90-year-old artist Ellsworth Kelly’s Chatham Series. Here, each piece features two joined canvases in an L-shape featuring contrasting colors.

Head further uptown to the Guggenheim for a hefty dose of color-therapy with James Turrell’s light exhibit that fills the iconic space with changing hues. The purples, red, blues and other hues highlight the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed space to beautiful effect,
showing the curves, swirls and angles.
