On Saturday night Marylyn Dintenfass (above) opened her new solo show, “Drop Dead Gorgeous,” at Chelsea’s Driscoll Babcock Galleries following several delays due to Hurricane Sandy‘s devastating effects on the neighborhood. In the meantime, Dintenfass opened her studio for a special hurricane relief fundraiser on November 8 to benefit the New York Foundation for the Arts‘ Emergency Relief Fund.
Appropriately, NYFA deputy director Mark Rossier (above left) was among the guests at Saturday’s opening, along with gallerist John Driscoll (below left), and many others. The works in “Drop Dead Gorgeous” take up the forms of the beautiful, fragile, and toxic Angel Trumpet flower, in large canvases featuring sparse, saturated palettes.
“Drop Dead Gorgeous” continues through January 26 at Driscoll Babcock Galleries.
