ANTONIDES - "Top of the Tower" Exhibition
Several years ago I was lucky to have a personal tour on the rooftop of one of the prominent buildings in downtown Manhattan with Jack Lieb of Tower 49. The view was spectacular and his stories of events related to the building and the area it surveys was an inspiration. This led to the current show which is now in the lobby gallery.
These paintings are views from atop and around Tower 49. At 12 feet by 8 feet each they are the largest-format suite of watercolor paintings I have completed so far. "Top of the Tower" exhibition will be on display from Feb 3, to June 20, 2009.
I hope you will be able to visit the exhibition. To preview the works on display, please click here www.davidantonides.com. There will be a reception this Thursday, Feb 5, between 5:30 and 8 pm. I hope you can make it!
