(Community Matters) My friend Jeannette Montgomery Barron’s latest book, Scene, is being released in the US on April 9. Sure would like to attend the exhibit of the paintings on April 3 at Collette’s in Paris or the April 6 book signing in Milan.
It’s a book of artist portraits with tidbits from Jeanette who spent her young adult years in New York’s 1980s art scene. Familiar portraits of Andy Warhol, Francesco Clemente, Andrew Lord, Rainer Fetting (even a bit about how Rainer fell in love with model Desmond Codogan who she brought along to a shoot).
Jeannette and her husband, international art dealer, James Barron were in Austin just a few weeks ago – we walked town lake trail and breakfasted at Bouldin Street Cafe. Their apartment in the Piazza dei Caprettair is immediately around the corner from my favorite coffee shop, Sant’ Eustachio, and just blocks from Campo De’ Fiori.
