Dandy's New York-Opening Reception Tuesday, February 7 from 6 – 9 PM

Christopher Pusey and Luis Accorsi are pleased to announce the exhibition of "The Dandy's New York", February 7 through March 4, 2012 at Dorian Grey Gallery, 437 East 9th Street, New York City. The gallery will host an Opening Reception Tuesday, February 7 from 6 – 9 PM. Please RSVP. For additional information, please contact: 516‐244‐4126.

Photographer Molua Muldown and multi‐media artist Lisa Pan reveal the authentic man behind New York’s celebrated and enigmatic dandy, Patrick McDonald. A series of environmental portrait photographs, mixed media collages and Patrick’s own poetry illustrate the East Village life and ethos of this unconventional artist. In this series, we look through the eyes of a man who has been described as a New York City living landmark and a walking work of art. Historically, New York City has been a haven for unique artists such as W. H. Auden, Quentin Crisp and Klaus Nomi. For over two decades, Patrick has been a muse and model for some of our most celebrated painters, photographers and illustrators. In our rapidly changing city, with it’s ever increasingly endangered environment for artists, Patrick’s uncompromising life simply inspires.
