After two years away from New York, Vincenzo Amato is debuting his newest and BEST collection of sculpture at the Earl McGrath Gallery tonight from 6-8pm (20 w. 57th st.). Shifting from the dark and natural hues of sheet metal that he has become known for, Amato has collaborated with hot-rod automobile painting experts from Brooklyn to cover his newest stunningly simplified nautical shapes in luminous, rich color. This is a turning point in contemporary art history.
It better be good. Honestly, we go to only a few openings a year and Vincenzo's is the most fun. Not only is his work always a crowd pleaser, the vibe is as festive and spontaneous as he is. MGR
