LOCAL ARTIST HAS INSTALLATION AT LOVE, HENRY
Native Tribecan Azikiwe Mohammed, who has taught at Church Street School of Music and Art for years, has an installation at Love, Henry – the curated shop in Two Bridges owned by locals Cass Lilien, Kristina Rinaldi and Catherine Fenton Bernath — titled “Auntie, Uncle Julius, Welcome Always” open through Sept. 29. More on the show TK, but wanted to get this up in the meantime. Love, Henry is at 105 Henry St.

Frans Hals, Portrait of a Bearded Man with a Ruff, copy painting for The Goldfinch movie Metropolitan Museum scene, period 17th-century Dutch portrait frame from Gill & Lagodich. Note how the distinctive strong shape anchors the post-explosion shot as smoke roils from the doorway. With the same historical accuracy, attention to period detail and hand-craftsmanship we give all our museum framing projects, Gill & Lagodich provided 41 antique and custom-made replica frames for The Goldfinch movie Metropolitan Museum scene. We are so excited to see our work on the big screen when the movie opens on Friday 9/13/19 #thegoldfinchmovie #thegoldfinch #metmuseumscene #41frames #makingthemet #gillandlagodich #tribeca #periodframe #franshals #dutchframe #antiqueframe #dutchripple @metmuseum @goldfinchmovie @wbpictures @gillandlagodich @theframeblog @tribecacitizen @tribecatrib
LOCAL FRAMERS MAKE THE SILVER SCREEN
I just love this sort of Tribeca connection: For the few of you who did not read The Goldfinch, the book revolves around a boy’s mysterious connection to a painting — Portrait of a Bearded Man with a Ruff. The frame for the copy of the painting featured in the movie (which opened this weekend) was made by Gill & Lagodich Gallery on Franklin Street, along with 40 other frames in the movie. The frame is a replica of the one that contains the original 17th Century Dutch master and makes its way into the trailer for the movie as well.
SHOUT OUT TO THE PS 234 GARDENERS…
The garden is looking so spectacular right now, I had to post some pics and offer a big thank you to the gals who keep that garden blooming. Sure makes Greenwich Street construction a lot easier to take.
