Man, how quickly one year goes by (and also two years). It’s time for the annual New York Staff Show at Phillips de Pury. This year, the event is at the Park Avenue location, not the one in Chelsea. Let’s hope this doesn’t mean they have begun cracking down on freeloaders like us.
Here are the photos from the 2012 Staff Show at Philips de Pury in New York’s Meatpacking District.
While it was a more muted celebration than the 2011 Staff Show, there was still plenty of great art, a good crowd, and a great atmosphere. Again, congratulations to our friend Bill.
Tonight is the Phillips de Pury & Company’s annual New York Staff Show. If you’re wondering, “what is the Staff Show,” it’s a…
celebration of the incredible artistic talent under our own roof. The exhibition reflects the contemporary practices of arts professionals active in the international art market, represented by a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, and multimedia.
I was at last year’s event and took a few photos of the art and of my friend William Driscoll’s work. Below is a link to the album.
I will be there again snapping some photos of Bill’s work and of this amazing space.
Yesterday was Bastille Day, and since I get a little more sensitive about it as the years go by, I tried to keep as hush-hush as possible. But, of course, as it tends to do, Facebook let the cat out of the bag and ratted out to my friends about Bastille Day. My dear friends posted nearly 100 messages with nice Bastille Day messages. Awww…. shucks!
Fortunately, Pilar’s boyfriend Bill had an art show at the art auction house where he works, and it was a very big party. He had three very large drawings, which we all saw and posed with for pictures, but it was the selection of complimentary summer cocktails that made another passing year a little easier to digest.
This was exactly the kind of Bastille Day I wanted. I got to drink for (almost) free, I got to spend it with some friends, and I wasn’t the center of attention.
Congrats to Bill, and cheers to everyone who wished me a happy Bastille Day.
