LE SALON des Artists...

Subscribe to Le Petit Salon by Email
Awesome people showed up...15 Art Enthusiasts who did not know each other!
Exactly at 2PM the door bell rang...open door...hang coat...I turn slowly...
Guests, one by one, immediately enveloped in the buzz buzz buzz... greeting and exchanging smiles... there is much intermittent laughter...a little white wine, some cruedite'... the Soiree had begun... the ART SALON was no longer an apparition! There are no strangers in this room?
There are artists, writers, a contest show celebrity, musicians, composer, collectors, enthusiasts, art bloggers, creatives of urban planning and architecture, published author, all of us intimately engaged in a lively conversation, asking questions, divulging secrets, showing artwork, sharing themselves, feelings, jokes, information on openings, exhibitions, performances, recommendations on upcoming events of interest to the arts community...truly enjoying each others company and most importantly... laughter, lots and lots of laughter!
Just a snippet of our conversation for the afternoon, a take on the game of "Truth or Dare" I suppose...
Recommendations for events were mentioned and among them dePury http://artlog.com/events/2724-audience-and-the-eavesdropper-new,
Also, Calder Circus at the Whitney Museum and Calder Jewelry at the Met
I am in the process of editing the video footage that was taken at the SALON ... seems to be too long to post in its current state!
Check back to see how discrete I've been ...

Certainly a fascinating experience. Especially for the variety and intelligence of the people
attending. A very congenial atmosphere as well. Great idea!
