Jennifer Bartlett's Amagansett Drawings at The Drawing Room, East Hampton
September is our favorite time to be in East Hampton. Most of the hordes of
nasty tourists summer people have left for NYC, and the town begins to return back to a charming country village.
This year there are also some impressive art shows. Our first pick... is Jennifer Bartlett's Amagansett Drawings at The Drawing Room, East Hampton.
These are a total Wow! We've always loved Jennifer's work, but these pastel works are beautiful, sophisticated, and with just enough of a hint of her signature style by this Modern Art Master.
You may have missed the shows review in this weekend's Sunday New York Times since it was only in the Long Island Section.. but Benjamin Genocchio's article is right on, and well worth a read.
There was also a review in the East Hampton Star by Isabel Carmichael.
Sadly the gallery, The Drawing Room, is one of our favorite out there in the Hamptooooons.. but, it doesn't have a very complete website. Maybe some MAO readers might give gallery owner Emily Goldstein a call and offer to help them out... cause they seem to be a bit web-technically challenged out there!!
FYI.. All the works in the show were sold in the first day or 2, and only 2 images are even on the gallery website. So don't just take MAO's word on this show.. go see them for yourself!!
