Dear Mr. Capsis,
Something which you might like to know about is an oddball happening of art and real estate that is currently taking place in Chelsea.
It has been organized by Leslie Lalehzar, a long time West Village resident, who is both an artist and a real estate agent associated with Sotheby’s International. Having the exclusive for the sale of an apartment at 100 Eleventh Avenue (19th Street), a building of Pritzer award winning architect Jean Nouvel, she decided the space was ideal for an art show and proceeded to put one together. It has been going on now for a month and a half, and will continue indefinitely, but of course not forever. There are nine artists in the show, which is called Collage as Matter. The juxtaposition of the art and the city views through the many windows of varying size and idiosyncratic placement, does, I think, provide a truly unusual visual experience.
Unlike a regular gallery, it doesn’t have formal hours, so anyone who wishes to see the show, must contact Leslie Lalehzar for more information (917-847-4067).
