Adam Bartos at The Drawing Room Gallery in East Hampton

If you have a few minutes to spare from what's going to be a glorious beach weekend.. MAO would strongly suggest checking out the new Adam Bartos "Yard Sales" show at The Drawing Room Gallery in East Hampton.

We think the official opening party is this Saturday..though Dr. Quiz, Janet (one of the MAO-ettes), and MAO were lucky enough to catch the show last weekend. We loved the photos in this show, the work truly captures the beautiful golden light one only experiences in the hamptons.  Here's a cut from the gallery press release.

 Akin to early 20th century photographs that celebrated the industrial gleam of the Machine Age, Bartos’ images give dignity to our 21stcentury castoffs. A close-up of the shimmering coral colored interior of a mid-century suitcase contrasted by a blue rhinestone and white linens within, is one of several photographs that invite the viewer to imagine a personal narrative.

The show is up till July 7th. (Photo, Adam Bartos, Yard Sale - sink stopper, 2007, 27 1/2 x 18 1/2 in)

Also..MAO sends a big congrats to Emily Goldstein for finally putting together a first class website to meet the quality of their top notch gallery program...welcome to 1999 Emily!

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the mention! I loved being a MAO girl! Great show, great company!

Great show. ALos if you're in the Hamptons, the Keszler Gallery at 45 Main St. Southampton is a hot spot for photography collectors. We have Massimo Vitalli's work at Mark Borghi Fine Art as well.
