Charles Saatchi’s trendsetting army of the artistically inclined have long tracked emerging artists on the ever-expanding Saatchi Online, and through next week, Chelsea gallery Sara Tecchia Roma has installed a selection of the blog’s best and brightest discoveries. Take Jay Batlle’s Times-based doodle, A Tender Celebration. All of us doodle, but not all of us do so in the form of Géricault’s Raft of Medusa. Not too shabby. —Rachel Wolff
