Fashion Week Begins… Again

It always seems to be Fashion Week and Fleet Week in NYC.  On one of those occasions you can give a straight guy a 6 pack and get lucky.  On the other occasion, you’ll see some of the ugliest clothing ever made.  I am very annoyed that I’ll be missing a lot of great music tonight as fashion week kicks off, but I have free tickets to see the legendary rock and roll goddess Patti Smith and that trumps everything as rightly it should.

Turn to the left!  Turn to the right!

Dead Letter Playground at the Leo Kesting Gallery in NYC. Now Through July 18, 2010

For those like myself who love street art, I’m here to tell you about an exhibit that is the motherlode of coolness!  The Leo Kesting Gallery in New York has a new exhibit called “Dead Letter Playground – A Collection of Contemporary Street Art” and it is amazing!  At the Leo Kesting Gallery, you will see works from Carolyn A’Hearn, Chris Stain, Clown Soldier, Dain, DickChicken, Doze Green, Elbowtoe, Elle, Ellis G, Faro, Gaia, Head Hoods, Imminent Disaster, Jen.Lu, Jordan Seiler, Know Hope, Laura Meyers, Lee Trice, Love Me, Matt Siren, Mister Never, Nicola Verlato, Peru Ana Ana Peru, Phil Lumbang, Shark Toof, Anthony Michael Sneed and Sweet Toof!

Love Me!

The names above might not sound familiar, but when you look through the exhibit, a bunch of light bulbs will go off in your head as you will have surely seen works by these artists on your travels around the city.  Even better news, as far as art goes, the works in this exhibit are extremely affordable.  I was so pleased to see works from Elbow Toe, Dick Chicken, Head Hoods, Gaia and Sweet Toof in an exhibit and I hope this is the beginning of a new trend because the stuff they make is fabulous!  It makes you think, it makes you laugh and it’s visually appealing.  What could be better?  The Leo Kesting Gallery is located at 812 Washington Street (at Gansevoort) and Summer gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 11am until 7pm and Sunday 1-6pm, the gallery will be closed on Mondays until after the Labor Day weekend.  The exhibit runs through July 18, 2010 – so do not miss it!  For the non-New Yorkers, you can view the catalog here.

See some more coolness after the jump.
