Jean Pagliuso

ChickenThe Drawing Room is one of the galleries in East Hampton.  It is located to the right behind Henry Lehr.  I have never understood the concept of appointment only galleries, but I guess it works.  There are always interesting exhibits in there but I generally get a view by peaking in the window.  The appointment only thing just throws me off.  Sort of says, if you make an appointment, you better be buying because we had to send someone over there to open the door for you. 

Last night, Jean Pagliuso, our friend, had an exhibit at the Drawing Room, so it was opened for viewing.  I actually got to walk in to the place.

Jean grew up in California and her father raised chickens.  I am not sure that is the only thing he did but it obviously made an impact on her.  The photos are of different chickens.  They are very cool.  She captures each chicken.  Their face, their look, prettyChicken_2 interesting.  I like how she used black and white film and a process that makes the photos look old.  Although I am not sure how she got them to stand still.
