son/daughter working relationships with their dads (and moms/Kate !!) are a trending situation.
just look at the huge, biggest blockbuster that just burst onto the movie scene, the critically acclaimed: ‘GRAVITY’ !! . . the latest film from ALFONSO CUARON, now 51 – the Mexican director who gave us, some say the best in the series, ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’, and before that, ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien’ . . and his screenwriter son, JONAS, 30.
born and bred in the same area, Amy graduated from Hunter College, and just recently completed a a one year Graduate Program at Savannah College of Art & Design in Arts Administration, getting her M.A. degree this past August 2013. so she wasn’t into wasting any time, and she got her space up and running within a month. that’s the way to go.
Alfredo’s work was no longer there, it was a CASH & CARRY type thing.
which is pretty common with new spaces. the cutting edge is fast & fluid !!
you gotta make the opening, and then you ought to go back at least once. see what else popped up . . in this case it’s:
from left . . DAVID PERRY, and . . a bright red ‘Gilligan’ by JOSH HARRIS.
if I had the dough, I’d be buying that Gilligan, and walking off with it under my arm, too.
the ‘Abbie’ in her middle name stands for the famous street politico, yippie ABBIE HOFFMAN – who is her godfather !! her dad is ARON KAY the famous .. pieman.
he’s the one who threw the pies !!
OMG – check out his website !!

ps: now, go back – and check out the ‘flower’ on Rachel’s dress – compared to the ‘floral’ design on her dad’s website !!
haha – the new ‘wave’ – in a nutshell.
dads and daughters, or what !!
