Katherine Bernhardt At The Hole

Before you leave town for the holidays go see Katherine Bernhardt’s show at The Hole, which is up through December 28th. I met Katherine ten years ago, I think through Wallace Whitney who I went to Bard MFA with and who had just opened up Canada. At the time, I asked her to paint a fashion story for us at Russian Harper’s Bazaar and gave her looks from the runway to paint with models of her choice on canvas. That was when she was working on the series above, which was the inspiration for what I wanted her to do for the magazine. I loved that fashion story. It got cut from the Art issue ironically enough (not my choice obviously), I think it was a bit edgy for the Russians back then.
