Countdown to Grand Opening

This past Wednesday, the gallery gang took an evening off to celebrate our new location right before the really really really intense weeks preceding our grand opening. After a quick tour of the new digs, we posed for a photo in the beautifully cobble-stoned 27th Street:

Friends and family (from left to right): Jane Harris, Leslie Brack, Helen Kor, Theodor (in stroller), Christopher Johnson, Anne Spurgeon (peeking out), Joe Fig, Trevor Wentworth, Alois Kronschläger, yours truly (peeking out), Thomas Lendvai, Iris Roberts, Chris Dorland, Rosemarie Fiore, and Michael Ferris. Not seen here, Nancy Baker, Jennifer Dalton, Nicholas Gaffney, Kate Gilmore, Andy Yoder, Max Carlos Martinez, and Joshua Stern

We then headed over to the Chelsea Piers for some bowling and pizza and perhaps a beer or two or (and later some number of Margaritas at Tequila's of which I've lost count, which explains the delay in posting this, but...).

Despite my Mid-Western upbringing and previous bragging about my prowress on the lanes, I and everyone else participating had our collective asses trounced by the deceptively laid-back Leslie Brack, who scored a 180.

Yes, there's a noticable lack of actual bowling in this shot, but most of us did at least get the shoes. From left: the adorable "Bambino" (in argyle sweater), Leslie Brack, Jennifer Dalton's back, Christopher Johnson, Amanda Church, Alois Kronschläger, and Rosemarie Fiore (seated).

Sorry I missed the party! Well, I do hate bowling... I would have been one of those cynical artists just wearing the shoes...

The new space is so wonderful I could weep!

See you at the inaugural opening!!
