Some new shows not to Miss in Chelsea..Sarah Pickering and El Anatsui

We did the rounds of many of the new dull shows opening around Chelsea last Thursday.. Of course...every gallery was just packed with people looking for free drinks great art.

Interestingly, not too many were sold out.. But there were at least 2 shows we all thought were... not to be missed..

1. Sarah Pickering's New "Fire Scene" Show at Daniel Cooney Fine Art ..

this hot British photographer.. and

this is Sarah's second solo show in NYC... Congrats!

and she's done it again.. with an impressive new heated body of work.

Can we do Pizza Night again tonight?

But I thought you were on a strict Non-Pizza Diet?

Hey MAO,

Thanks for the kind words on Sarah's show. It was good to see you!


well fluffed

If only...Bambino's idea of fluffing before the scan was a nanosecond of a hug and a shove out from behind the curtain. :-)

Geeze... Ed...

"....nanosecond of a hug and a shove out from behind the curtain"

Aaah.. Poor Ed...You make the Bambino sound like Mama Rose from Gypsy..

I'm sure he's so proud of you ED!!
