Art Attack! The New York Academy of Art held its Summer Drawing Party at The Pridwin Hotel

Ensuring an evening that was both chic and cultural, East Enders flocked to newly-reopened The Pridwin Hotel & Cottages on Shelter Island for The New York Academy of Art’s Summer Drawing Party yesterday evening. The event, which was hosted by Alissa Friedman of LGDR gallery and Glenn Petry, Brooke Shields and Chris Henchy, Colleen Bashaw and Bruce Bohuny, Curtis Bashaw and Will Riccio, and Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler, saw guests trying out their own artistic interpretations of live models and the stunning sunset while learning the basics of drawing 101. Renowned painter John Alexander also gave a drawing demonstration while NYAA president David Kratz interviewed New York-based figurative artist Reisha Perlmutter, much to the delight of guests. Among those in attendance were Isabel Wilkinson, Ben Schorr, Carole Server, Oliver Frankel, Alivse Orsini, Candace Bushnell, Nicole Miller, Penny Pilkington, Joyce Varvatos, Nicole Salmasi, Justin ‘The Blind Eye Artist’ Wadlington (whose work on the evening drew a crowd of onlookers), and many more. The al fresco evening served as a warmup to the upcoming Fall Gala, Take Home A Nude (their ask, not ours!!) which will honor Tracey Emin when it takes place at Chelsea Industrial on October 25.
