During the opening night reception, I was able to cop a picture of the real Krys Fox in front of a painting of Krys by Scooter LaForge.

I also saw the legendary Johnny Rozsa, who was kind enough to pose for a photo with the night’s star, Scooter LaForge!  Lucky me!

Happy birthday to artist Johnny Rozsa!  Johnny has focused on photographing fashion and celebrities in his career and the list of people that have been in front of his camera is very impressive.  He’s photographed everyone from Leigh Bowery to Sade.  You should definitely check out his book “Untouched,” a collection of some of his work.  As you look through it, you’ll definitely recognize many of his iconic photos.  The first time I met Johnny was at a launch party for “Untouched” and I was floored by how nice he was to me.  Usually at openings, the artist can be pretty mobbed as everyone wants to talk to them, but that night, Johnny not only made time to talk with me and my friend, but he also showed us a hand-made prototype of what would become “Untouched” (which was also extremely cool).  Months later, I ran into him at another opening and not only did he remember meeting me, but he told me he started reading this site – and I don’t think I can ever get over it!  Too cool.  Johnny, thanks for being a genuinely nice person.  Thank for all the great art you’ve made and continue to make and most importantly, have a fantastic birthday!

What a scene!  The opening night gala reception for the art exhibit “QUEER: FROM ZERO TO A HUNDRED” at the Theater for the New City in New York was insanely fun.  The exhibit features works from Scooter LaForge, Johnny Rozsa, Aaron Miller, Barnaby Whitfield, Pete Hocking, Julie Smith, Peter J. Ketchum, Ricky Longo-Burrows and Tracy Phillips.  The space is enormous, the art is great and the artists are so talented.  The Toilet Boys’ Miss Guy was spinning tunes all night and Johnny Rozsa and Scooter LaForge met fans and signed copies of their latest books “Untouched” (by Johnny Rozsa) and “Scooter LaForge” (by Scooter LaForge).  The reception was so crowded, I will have to go back to get a better look at the art.  In the meanwhile, please enjoy a few party pix.  Good news for all of us, the exhibit runs until August 9, 2011, so don’t miss it!  Theater for the New City is located at 155 1st Avenue in New York.

There’s no doubt that Johnny Rozsa is a photography legend.  He’s taken iconic photos of everyone from Leigh Bowery to Sade to Carmen Electra.  In tandem with his latest monograph Untouched, the Christopher Henry Gallery in New York has a must see exhibit of Rozsa’s work.  On display are fantastic photos of Boy George, Grace Jones, Robert Mitchum, The Jacksons, Rick James and Leigh Bowery, just to name a few.  Rozsa’s photos are from a pre-Photoshop era and the exhibit collects intimate and iconic moments from some of the world’s best loved stars.  I attended the gala opening reception and it was quite a scene.  I spoke with Johnny Rozsa and he was extremely nice.  He even showed me the work-in-progress prototype which inspired Untouched!

In other fantastic news, the “Knitting is for Pu****” exhibit by Olek, which I’ve raved about numerous times before, has been extended due to overwhelming demand!  A studio apartment has been built inside the gallery and Olek has crocheted over every single item inside the apartment!  It’s one of the most unique exhibits I’ve seen in a really long time and everyone that sees it is blown away by how cool it is.  “Knitting is for Pus****” has been extended until November 17, 2010, so make sure you go see this!

It gets better.  In addition to two wonderful exhibits, one of my favorite artists, Scooter LaForge has designed a very limited edition T-shirt commemorating the Johnny Rozsa exhibit.  There are two designs available and below, you can see the shirt I’ll be sporting on future adventures.  These shirts can be purchased at the Christopher Henry Gallery located at 127 Elizabeth Street in Manhattan while supplies last.
