At Dorian Grey’s for Artist and Editor Extraordinaire Walter Robinson


The intimate East Village gallery Dorian Grey overflowed March 1st with fans of Walter Robinson, artist and editor extraordinaire, for his new show, Indulgences. Since the demise of Artnet magazine last summer, its founder-editor has been busy in his studio. Robinson’s small fluid new paintings and gouaches celebrated pulp romance, pin-ups, quotidian comestibles, pharmaceutical sundries and booze bottles. The enthusiastic crowd included Roberta Smith, Jerry Saltz, Donald Kuspit, Rene Ricard and myriad other downtown admirers. Robinson’s recent exhibitions have been at Metro Pictures, Chicago’s Firecat Projects and Haunch of Venison.  437 East 9th Street between 1st Ave and Ave A, through April 7th.
