the weird and the holy

Période de clownisme I by Amanda Manitach
2009, graphite, 30 x 45 inches

the weird & the holy: the new guard christmas party.

Say goodbye to traditional holiday dinners and say hello to the new guard. Beautiful art by Amanda Manitach, followed by delicious food by Dana Cree and then a great concert by Fatal Lucciauno.

dana cree, poppy's resident pastry magician will present a four-course dinner of bizarre, eccentric, and dark turns on favorite holiday food. cree has a meticulously conceptual culinary vision, honed from tenures at the fat duck, veil, and molly moon's before landing in her current role as jerry traunfeld's right-hand-lady. – wr

amanda manitach's art is dark and moody and beautiful—just like christmas. psychologically dense and intriguing, her art sings with rococo flourishes. amanda will be hanging a suite of drawings that will reference the nutcracker, freud and doppelgangers. think sad little children and you'll have an idea of what's under the tree this year. – jv
