NYC’s Covid numbers have been way down for over a month now (#nystrong), which means that the city’s cultural institutions are reopening — and no one is happier about that than me! We recently celebrated the 40th Birthday of a close friend by visiting the American Museum of Natural History on its reopening day, and we had all kinds of crazy, socially-distanced-and-masked-up fun. It was in the gift shop near the Dinosaur exhibits that we spotted this fun Shark Attack magnet. Be careful not to get your hands near his mouth, because he is HANGRY!
Are you as excited as I am for the premier of the final episodes of Breaking Bad? As much as I am dying to see what happens next on the Best Show Ever in the Universe of All Time, I am truly sad that the series will be ending after these eight episodes air. Sigh. There is however a way to remember Breaking Bad always and forever, and that is with a set of awesome refrigerator magnets, which I saw on sale for $7 or 8 bucks at Urban Outfitters. You’re welcome. And don’t forget to tune into A&E on August 11th!
Pop Surrealism is a genre of painting that never gets tiresome for me. Connecticut based Artist Robert Deyber paints realist-style visual renderings of clichés, euphemisms and popular sayings or phrases, to create surreal, dreamlike tableaus that really take the viewer elsewhere. I love his work.
Despite his keen sense of humor and the visually absurd, Robert Deyber is a seriously skilled painter. Much like solving Rebus Puzzles, the fun in observing Deyber’s paintings is trying to deduce the title from the images on the canvas. Sometimes it’s really easy and obvious, and at other times quite confounding. You can even make a game of it with your friends!
Here are some of my favorites from Thursday night’s opening reception, where I had the chance to meet Robert, and he was very nice!
Martin Lawrence Galleries is located at 457 West Broadway (Between Houston and Prince) in Soho, NY.
