Remember these two? Joe Nye? Eddie Ross? I mentioned them in the same post last Thursday and they both emailed to tell me they would be attending the same event that very night.
And would I like to come? Would I! Sadly, no private jet in the Blandings's stables to whisk me off to New York, so I had to make do with lots of good snaps the next day.
Joe hosted a show for the Dutch Touch Art Company. Barbara von Schreiber and Shawn Silver are a mother and daughter team who are supplying hand painted decorative canvases based on little known masters of the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries, along with some original work.
Traditional themes with a modern twist, the canvases are generally quite large.
The beautiful, graphic pieces would surely add some punch to any interior.
Hmmm...even the duck club, perhaps?
I do wish I could have been there. These 20 x 20 paintings particularly caught my eye. This is what I usually want to do with paintings anyway - stand so close, nose almost touching, to see every detail.
And look, they had the perfect perch for me right there decked in green and white floral just in case I wore less than sensible shoes.
Not that I could have borne sitting in a corner with all that sparkling company bouncing around. The exhibit is open through November 1st at the Art & Design Building, 1059 3rd Ave. Pop in if you have a chance.
The event was also hosted by Downtown and the Claremont Showroom. Photos courtesy of Eddie Ross and Jaithan Kochar, making them the perfect guests.
