Tonight Rebecca Hossack Gallery will be feting a Scottish artist with Scottish cocktails.
Glasgow-born Alasdair Wallace will be in attendance tonight, making his New York debut with “Rare Vagrant & Accidentals,” an assemblage of 21 paintings (mostly acrylic landscapes) and a small bronze sculpture that will be on display through May 7.
Lots of the pieces feature birds (ducks, geese, crows, roosters, and even a parakeet hanging from a noose). One of the paintings, “Flock,” has never been exhibited before.
The artist had an exhibition at Rebecca Hossack’s London outpost earlier this year.
At the opening reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., “Glasgow cocktails” will be served. The Iron Monkey is one part scotch whiskey and two parts Irn-Bru (Scotland’s most-popular soda) over ice.
