(Le) Poisson Rouge Revives Village’s Art Scene

Keeping in vein with my recent decision to open up my blog to non-client news in NYC, I’d like to tell you all about the recent art gallery launch of (Le) Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker, near Thompson) – a “multimedia arts cabaret”. Not sure why a parenthesis surrounds the Le but, what do I know? I’m not an artist (well, not a professional one at least).

The inaugural exhibit, “Through the Looking Glass: Image and Process Deconstructed”, is an homage to legendary composer Philip Glass by two of today’s most sought-after artists: the master photorealist painter Chuck Close and installation artist Devorah Sperber (famous for her thread spool works).

The gallery also doubles as a restaurant, serving up small-plates fare like Truffled Mac and Cheese and Warm Cookies & Milk – now that’s my kind of gallery.
