This week features a flurry of festivities from the NYC Winter Jazzfest to openings at Sean Kelly, Envoy Enterprises, David Zwirner, and the Bowery Hotel Basement Annex. If those don't peak your interest, head to the Chelsea art district Thursday evening, and take your pick of the winter shows. All this and more, on this week's art round up.
This weekend, Bushwick Open Studios will hold its neighborhood art festival, providing a good excuse to revisit, or discover, some wonderful Brooklyn galleries. Back in Manhattan, there's a bevy of charitable benefits to support, including UNICEF's Annual Next Generation Photo Benefit, the Madison Square Art Benefit, and the Artrageous Gala Dinner and Auction. And don't miss some great poolside photographs of Marilyn Monroe. So grab your best friends -- diamonds or otherwise -- and dive into this week's art scene. More»
SCOPE Hamptons Opening Reception was held at Salomon Contemporary last Friday. And, from 8pm-midnight, the hippest of the hip were dancing it up around Michael Bilsbourough's mural.

My favorite was Rose Hartman (Rosie-pictured above). The famous society and style photographer was such a character! My favorite photo of hers was the one of Bianca Jagger on top of a white horse entering Studio 54. Jack the Pelican was also there, hailing all the way from Brooklyn.
