Thursday 15th October: Millie Brown's "Rainbow Body" at Gazelli Art House

Millie Brown is back in town this week to take part in the Frieze week of events with her UK debut at Gazelli with a site-specific performance installation.  Her rainbow theme continues with this new work using crystals acting as prisms to cast spectrum reflections from her ceiling suspension.  She is in situ for 4 hour stints for 4 days at the gallery on Dover Street to be viewed from either outside on the street or up close.  Her frame hangs in amongst the parallel show inside the space "Let there be light, revisited" which highlights pioneers of the 60's/70's Light & Space movement.   I was lucky enough to be treated to dinner at Bistrotheque on Monday to celebrate both the event and her birthday. Apparently it's standard practise in the art-world to hold a dinner party as a private view ...... I now realise which industry I should have gone into!!!!!!!  Thanks for the taster Millie!  

Gazelli Art House, 39 Dover Street, London W1S 4NN
Thurs 15th Oct 5-9pm, Fri & Sat 17th Oct 2-6pm

Thursday 15th Oct: Andrew Logan's 70th Birthday Masked Ball

Happy Birthday Andrew Logan who celebrated his 70th with a Masked Ball party in a grand church, now converted into 291 Gallery.  The artist (who like me) wears top-to-toe one colour, invited his guests to come dressed in their favourite colour.  He spent the night sneaking off to slip out of one hue into another to complete the whole spectrum of looks before the stroke of midnight when he appeared as a complete rainbow.  LEGEND.  
Here he is cutting his cake, still wearing his own mosaic mirror mask.  And here I am in my neon yellow frog guise with Kit Miles and Kitty Joseph.
