The Leslie Lohman Gay Art Foundation along with the annual Fresh Fruit Festival had a great opening for the group art show called “Bright Lights, Queer City,” depicting images of New York City’s Gay Nightlife scene, with an opening night reception hosted by the reigning authority on NYC nightlife, Michael Musto of the Village Voice. The premiere reception took place on Wednesday July 13th from 6 to 9 PM at the Leslie Lohman gallery located on 26 Wooster Street in SoHo – New York City. The show will be on display through Saturday, July 23rd. The show is curated by drag personality and television media correspondent Lady Clover Honey of NY Life TV’s Under the Pink Carpet and recording artist and SAG actor Lovari. They have combined their contacts to create an amazing group show of artists, photographers and media paparazzi along with significant historical artifacts from the collection of drag historian Joe E. Jeffreys of New York University showcasing an electrifying and diverse collection of images that represent the LGBT nightlife scene of New York City, past and present. Hanging will be done by designer Jim Tavolaro with lighting by Greg DuPres. “New York City is world-famous for both its vibrant Nightlife and vast, diverse Queer Community. Pictures capturing the City’s Queer Nightlife provide some of the most unique, exciting and artistic images.” says Lady Clover Honey. Images will feature dancers to doormen, drag divas to go-go hunks, bartenders, nightlife personalities, club kids and everything Out and in-between.
