In no other city than New York, would one be able to find on a Monday night -- a handful of the island's most adored and powerful. I'm talking about the "Strike" opening last night at Joe Nahmad's gallery.

The show included Italian Arte Povrera artists and Still House artists, it was called "Strike" as a play on the force that the artists use to create the works. 

Mixed in the small crowd were models, Leonardo Dicaprio, several famous artists, top art advisors, and top collectors. 

Peter Sutherland's work really stood out. A large three panel work with overlay of a bonfire on its plywood surface.

My tip of the week is get your Sutherland ASAP, I think he's gonna have a hell of a year!
