As if spending an evening with my son Rick, amidst Warhol, Picasso and Chagall wasn’t enough, the Martin Lawrence Gallery was the stage for The Noise Beneath The Apple, TNBTA , book party celebrating the independent artists performing on the streets and nooks and crannies of NYC. The festivities included an excerpt reading, some live performances and a fun pop-up photo booth from DeckNYC.
The Noise Beneath the Apple is my coveted new coffee table book and so much more! It encompasses that amazing feeling I get when listening to a performer sharing music for the love of music and it was my pleasure to be a part of this amazing scene. From classical violin to hip hop to tribal baroque, you can find it here. It brings me back to my love affair with New York City, where old world grandeur meets the avant-garde and creativity is king. The nod to the best of pre-war New York Gold Coast traditional with big molding and intricate millwork details that is becoming more popular with the release of Gatsby is a great backdrop for colorful modern art, funky housewares like those found in the shop at the MOMA, eclectic furnishings and rugs made from recycled fibers. Creating a passionate artistic blend is my way of setting that tone for a space you can really live in.
