See It Loud

It was to be a classy night out in the city.  Two young ladies (me and my mother) making their way to 88th Street and 5th, the National Academy Neil WelliverStanley LewisMuseum, for a VIP opening night event.  Not too shabby, eh?  I’ve never been to an opening of an art exhibit, let alone been invited to one by the art patron, in this case, Henry Justin!  I was quite honored to be among those in attendance, all fancily dressed, nibbling on finger food and sipping on champagne.  Some of the artists were even in attendance!  See It Loud, the exhibition, features seven post-war American painters, who all brought something different to the art world of the time.  I was pleasantly surprised that I liked most of the work, since I still claim I’m not a fan of modern art – when will I stop saying this and acknowledge the fact that I enjoy too many modern exhibits for this to be true?  There were two artists in particular, though, that caught my eye: Stanley Lewis (1941- ) and Neil Welliver (1929-2005).
