I love Robert Deyber’s paintings.  In addition to the realist visuals you see when looking at his work, each painting is the depiction of a play on words.  He is currently showing a new body of paintings at the Martin Lawrence Galleries in New York, all of which will make you smile at their cleverness.  A fun fact about Robert Deyber – he made the cover art for Tom Petty’s “Highway Companion” album.

At the opening night reception, one of the desperate housewives of (insert city here) reality tv shows were filming at the gallery and moments before I spoke with Robert Deyber, I witnessed him signing his life away in consent forms (half kidding).  It was quite amusing.  Robert was extremely cool and posed for a photo with me.  You can see it after the jump.  We can only assume that he also posed for photos with the desperate housewives.  Hopefully they bought some art!

This exhibit will be up through July 2013 and this location of Martin Lawrence Galleries is at 457 West Broadway in Manhattan.

It’s hard to tell from these photos, but these works by Jim Dine are massive and seeing them in person is an experience you should not miss.

NYC!  See the works of an art legend in person at Danese and Loretta Howard Gallery.  From now until March 2, 2013, “New Paintings” by Larry Poons will be on display.  This series of abstract works are extremely large, vivid,  detailed and you cannot possibly do justice to the works by only seeing photos on line.

Larry Poons was on hand at the opening reception for this exhibit last night and if you didn’t know, he’s also an art professor and many of his former students were on hand for this event.  I overheard many of his ex-students telling Larry Poons they are now successful artists in their own right, which pleases me to no end.

“New Paintings” by Larry Poons is showing at Danese / Loretta Howard Gallery (located at 525-531 West 26th Street, 4th Floor) in New York through March 2, 2013.
