Gallery Opening at the Paul Kasmin Gallery. Attendees mingled over martinis while enjoying the entrancing artworks by a variety of astonishing artists. Body paint victim, Rebecca Goebel certainly shocked patrons while fantastically frolicking amongst the city elite with a colorful canvased body (talk about a strong fashion statement..or lack there of!?). Creamy sculptures and vivacious paintings adorned the floors of the gallery, while floral printed dresses, cheery checkered tops, and terrific top hats added to the artistic ambiance of the opening. The exhibition "is a show of males and females without clothing, surely not inherently contentious at this stage of the game – we suppose..." and "will present the naked – traditionally arousing, interpreted by myriad artists." Cheers!!
