The 2012 Staff Show at Phillips de Pury

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.

Bastille Day at an Art Gallery


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.
