I was back in New York to visit friends and as always, I had an amazing time. The above photo is from an exhibit in Chelsea of work by New Yorker cartoonist, Roz Chast. My sister and I grew up reading her stuff. This was the first show I’ve been to where you could here people chuckling as they walked around.
Here’s an example.
My mother made Jello 1-2-3 for a brief, painful period in the ’60s. I had forgotten it until I saw this.
And this one makes me laugh every time.
At the gallery entrance was this cute “break station” for dogs. There was also a bowl of clean water, which is out of frame. New York is in many ways the most dog-friendly city.
The humor, the art. Love it. Wonderful escape. For the record, clowns have creeped me out since childhood. Just sayin’.
Clowns are definitely creepy, which begs the question does anyone like them?
