Head over to the Dorian Grey Gallery to see great photos of the iconic New York institution Patrick McDonald inside many iconic New York institutions. If you are not familiar with Patrick McDonald, he has been a fashionista in the New York scene for decades and he’s one of the last links to the “good old days” of New York before the Disney-fication of the city happened. The photos and locales that can be seen in this exhibit are filled with wishes of ‘if only those walls could talk’ moments and from the look on McDonald’s face, chances are he could tell you a story or fifty about what went down in those glory days.
“The Dandy’s New York” runs until March 4, 2012 at the Dorian Grey Gallery, located at 437 East 9th Street (located between First Avenue and Avenue A).

Robert W. Richards - Glamour Redefined
On October 25, 2010 in New York, I attended the opening night gala of artist Robert W. Richards’ latest exhibit “Glamour Redefined.” The exhibit is so fabulous, he is celebrating two nights in a row! If you are around on October 26, 2010, head over to the NP Contemporary Arts Center in New York (located at 131 Chrystie Street). As the name of the exhibit suggests, Richards has redefined our common definitions of the word glamour with illustrations that will question the traditional meaning of the word.
I spoke with Mr. Richards and as you can see from the above picture, he was super cool. We chatted about art, our definitions of glamour as well as one of my favorite works of his, an illustration of “Chelsea Boys” creators Glen Hanson and Allan Neuwirth.
After the jump, see a picture of my encounter with Robert W. Richards, his take on Marilyn Monroe as well as fashionista Patrick McDonald posing with his artistic likeness.
