There are some nights in New York that get more epic by the second and the opening night reception for Kenny Scharf’s latest amazing exhibit “Kolors” at Paul Kasmin Gallery on April 4, 2013 was one of them.

First off, you have to wonder how in the world Will Ryman’s exhibit was removed from the same gallery space.  See photos of that exhibit here (link will open in new window).  But I digress… Seeing Kenny Scharf’s art is more than enough to make your night, but the opening for “Kolors” was so much more.  Kenny is a donut enthusiast, so naturally, there were free donuts at the opening.

And of course, the donuts were served on golf cart featuring Kenny’s art.

But that’s not all!  The guest list for “Kolors” included so many legends, the Paul Kasmin Gallery was bursting with creativity and inspiration.

Moments later, I found myself in a conversation with two of the most creative people I’ve ever encountered (and please know that I’ve been going out in the art and music scene nearly every night for over 20 years, so this speaks volumes!) – Joey Arias and Mark Kostabi!

These final two photos are too heavy for words.  All I can do is express my gratitude to Joey, Mark and Kenny for being such major inspirations in my life!  THANK YOU!!!
