This year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House was amazing! Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a magnificent estate into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. All proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Club. This was its second year in Palm Beach (its been going on in New York since 1973) and once again one of the decorators chose to use some of my work to adorn his walls. Billy Ceglia chose a whopping 48 images from my @a.social.life series and framed them up and down the hallways he was tasked with designing. In addition, I was given free reign to explore the house and take pictures of the designers and shoot more photos for my @a.social.life. Many of the designers hired me to shoot the rooms and my photos were featured by Veranda and Architectural Digest.
It was an amazing experience to both have my work on display at the Inaugural Kips Bay Decorators Show House in Palm Beach and shoot some of it for Architectural Digest and House Beautiful. Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a magnificent estate into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. This year marks the first time it is being done in Palm Beach. All proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Kips Bay and Palm Beach County.
My mother and I had a photo show in Palm Beach. Did I mention she's a bad ass photographer in her own right? Victoria Mele, go check here out. She does large scale prints of flowers close up. Anyway, we had a show at EMKO in Palm Beach. Remember them? I did a fashion shoot there awhile back. Man, I keep going of on these side tangents.... One more time from the beginning. My mom and I had a photography show and it went awesome. Lots of people showed up, we sold a ton of work and both the Palm Beach Daily News and The Palm Beach Post wrote stories on it! Cool, right?
So honored to be asked by Salve Regina University to exhibit my Newport portrait series along with the talented (and philanthropic) Elizabeth Kahane! It was a great event, a great turnout and a very fun experience overall. Best of all, the Newport Art Museum took one of my pieces to put in their permanent collection. How cool!
