In concurrence with Craig Drennen's opening in the main gallery, a selection of recent work by Anthony Haden-Guest will be exhibited in our viewing room. Please join us for the opening reception on Friday, November 18th, from 6-8pm at 39 Lispenard Street. Recent Drawings will be on view until January 14, 2023.
Anthony Haden-Guest's cartoons embody the levity and the mundanity of everyday life in as little as a single stroke of the pen. In just a few lines, Haden-Guest is able to capture an attitude, expression, humor, and feeling about what it means to live in the contemporary world with complex feelings and relationships. A frequent contributor to major publications, Haden-Guest's drawings capture an irreverent honesty that taps into human foibles and desires.
