An event I would have liked to have attend tonight if I was a halfway decent drawer: The artist Nicole Eisenman leading a figure drawing workshop at the Whitney. One of my favorite contemporary American artists, Nicole E. also happens to be a fellow school parent, and I stare at her starstruck every time she strides (because she totally has swagger) into the lobby to drop off or retrieve her kid. It's like Stephen Adler (another fellow gen-exer) walking into the room . . . but better.
Nicole's work is also included in this year's Whitney Biennial which I have yet to see.
Two paintings are below. Here's more on her her gallery's site.
See, I told you I'm mini-blogging for another week!
