HenrietteSimonPicker“We’re living in an upside down world.” Henriette Simon Picker

Artist Henriette Simon Picker, age 97, is not slowing down. In fact she’s speeding up — producing 70-80 paintings per year. After attending the Art Student League (1939-41), Mrs. Simon Picker went on to raise a family, and have a distinguish 45 year career designing shoes, with her painting back-burnered until she picked it up again at age 92. Her first solo show was three years later.

One of her latest works: Coney Island, 2014 is on display at Carter Burden Gallery in NYC, as part of a group show, through August 21, 2014.

Golub2014lGolub2014q“I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked.” Allen Ginsberg, Howl, 1956

Artist Andy Golub is at it again — along with an army of artists he painted 40 nude models today in Columbus Circle. This year’s performance was sanctioned by the City. In the past he’s been arrested for his ‘art’.

Perhaps NYC officials wanted to distract the people away from the evil being perpetrated by the U.S. and Israeli governments, vis-a-vis Ukraine and Gaza.
