Dino Eli Gallery
Tout le downtown bohemian set was at Dino Eli's Orchard Street gallery to toast Max Noy's amazing photography exhibition Duality of Sand. The textures expressed in the photographs -- weathered wood, grains of sand shadows (anti-texture) -- are astonishing when placed alongside one another. The pictures were taken in Montauk. "And then I went back to that place and it was completely different," Max told me last night.
The pictures, which run from the $750-$1,000 price range would look lovely in a summer home, or year round. They are especially poignant when viewed in Winter -- when the memories of summer and the beach are best savored during the cold evenings.
Spotted among the beautiful people, artists: Damon Shair, Lisa Lozanno, Dino Eli, Ray Kelly, Anja Koestler, Joe Bendik and Curtis Valentine.
