NIGHTLIGHT: Amanda Dolan, “Precious Things,” Opening Saturday, October 17th

On Saturday night, Amanda Dolan unveiled her latest exhibit, “Precious Things,” at the Ward Nasse Gallery on Prince Street in SoHo.  The show served as a follow up to “She’s a Lady,” “Call Me Crazy,” and “Heart Attack,” and was noticeably happier in theme, including a hodge podge of all of her most precious inspirations.

We have featured her as a Mover and Shaker:

The mixed-media pieces of work ranged in sizes and price, all very brightly lit in shades of pinks and blues, featuring hearts, flowers, rainbows, ice cream cones, and even Amanda’s beloved French Bulldog, “Pearl.”  The exhibit also introduced Amanda’s first foray into sculpture work, a mannequin up-ended and covered in mixed-media, being used as what Amanda has dubbed a “post-modern flower pot.”   Perfectly matching her works of art, Amanda was clad in Betsey Johnson from head to toe, including a vintage Betsey dress, black Betsey leggings with bright pink roses, and leopard print Betsey stilettos.

Guests sipped on red and white wine and indulged in her multi-colored sugary display including mini-cupcakes, customized M&M’s and hard candy known as “bling, bling rings.” 

With about half of “Precious Things” selling out on opening night, the remainder of the pieces will remain on display through October 31st, 2009.   For more information on Amanda Dolan and her private commission portrait services, check out
