Dear Friends and Art Lovers,
What has been fun about preparing for my upcoming Retrospective is rediscovering old artwork. One series, "Gordy Recommends" is a kick. I gave figurative paintings a utility when I added a custom cocktail recipe over the image. Now it's worth something!
C'mon down! This series, one of many, will be part of my one night only retrospective, GORDY GRUNDY: BURN, on Friday 13th July at Coagula Curatorial, in Chinatown, from 8pm to 11pm. Crown will spin.
Bombay Sapphire wants to mix you a cocktail creation.
Nearby, TRAXX Restaurant has a special BURN: Fiesta Menu: Click Here. The Chef has even commissioned a cocktail in honor of a painting.
