Span the Hudson – Art openings this weekend

One of our favorite NY kind of things to do is to attend art gallery openings. Jene & I met Emmanuel Fremin this past summer. Emmanuel modeled for me at Jene’s studio and we connected. As fine art photographers, not only is it great to see what is out there, but it’s also a pleasure to meet other photographers and artists. Only during an opening reception do you get a chance to speak to the artists about their work and creative insights.

The last opening at Emmanuel Fremin Gallery was for Thomas Barbey’s “Unleashed” exhibit. Wonderful photo compositions that were not mastered digitally. Thomas was charming and very modest about his success, telling us that he is so lucky to have found a niche in the art market.

This exhibit is a group showing of 10 contemporary artists that Emmanuel has brought together for “Blinding”: Michel Giliberti, Drew Tal, Kilu, Simone Monney, PHL, Francoise Ben Arous, Jean Noel L’harmeroult, Francois Nanjo Shunsuke, Thomas Barbey and Alex Romanov.

I’m looking forward to meeting Drew Tal, whose work I find astounding. PHL, Alex Romanov, Francoise Ben Arous, Kilu will also be at the opening. Knowing the discerning taste of Emmanuel, I’m sure to be intrigued at the very least with all the works.

Emmanuel emailed me a few of the works to put on my blog and I chose only these 4 because I want you to come see the rest for yourselves at the gallery. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

So if you are in Soho after work on Friday night, stop by and whet your appetite. What a great way to start your dinner conversation later in the evening. “I just bought this amazing piece of art for the living room and got to meet with the artist at this fabulous gallery, just around the corner”.
