The Gallerina is a new short film for 81 Hours. It was written by Arty Nelson and stars Annabelle Dexter-Jones. The story centers on a beautiful female gallery assistant. Gallery workers have the unique position of being a liaison between the creative class and the collector class. The Gallerina explores art-speak, one of languages most beautifully obscure incantations. To the uninitiated, it is sometimes quite odd and entertaining and borders on poetry.
Shot on location at The Painting Factory: Abstraction after Warhol at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, this film is a love letter to both creativity and words.
David Matterhorn took this amazing portrait of Baby Sal. Tonight is his first Art Show at the Fat Radish. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Baby Sal who would excitedly show me volumes of poetry he had written. All kept on this old Blackberry! A few summers ago he started making art.

THE ANDY WARHOL STATUE
Artist Rob Pruitt’s homage to the late pop artist is erected in Union Square, once home to Andy’s notorious Factory. The 10-foot monument features Warhol in a tweed Brooks Brothers jacket, Levi’s 501’s, and a Bloomingdales bag full of Interview mags. While temporary, the statue should be there at least 15 minutes.
