WALTER ROBINSON . . at a pop-up catalog signing of his retrospective museum show . . curated by BARRY BLINDERMAN of the University Galleries of Illinois State University.
I believe at that time, Nov 8, 2015 – all Walter knew was that the show was going to travel on to Philadelphia, for a spin – and this was a way to get his catalog & some sense of the show . . out to his friends in NYC.
Walter’s longtime & devoted ‘squeeze’ . . LISA ROSEN, with LOUIE FLEZK.
some of you may know Louie as the cameraman on the infamous Kostabi cable tv game show: Name That Painting.
JOHN AHEARN and CHARLES McGILL.
the event took place at the newly re-positioned but still looks the same, MAX FISH BAR in the Lower East Side.
CHARLIE AHEARN and CARLO McCORMICK.
JANE DICKINSON . . who did the great New Year’s Eve tile mosaic in the Times Sq subway station.
TOM OTTERNESS . . y’all know his subway stop – 14th St !!!!
Simon’s sister, HELENE CERIGO LUPATKIN, MD . . who lent Walter’s early, 1982 . . ‘Revenge’ painting – to the show, and she owns quite a few others, as well.
WALTER ROBINSON . . signing catalogs.
he sold out the entire lot that he had on hand, a good-sized carton box full.
they were $35 a pop.
this one was for Helene, who had brought the copy she had received as a loaner to the show.
WALTER seemed to be having a great time . . and why, not ?
