Recap: Ricky Powell's "Fall Classic" Group Art Show
Having just come back from an overseas tour, Ricky Powell returned to a solo exhibit this past Monday at the Ace. Just two days later, he and Robert Aloia put together The Rickford Institute’s Fall Classic, a collaborative art show debuting the work of a select handful of upcoming photographers and artists including TTK, Sky Farrell, Klash One, Lauren Charlea, Luc Regne, Gianna Leo Falcon, and yours truly!
Thankfully, the weather held up from the shitty rain earlier in the day. Festivities started with an open bar and good tunes. Soon White Rabbit was at capacity, with attendees spilling out and politicking on the street. Powell mingled with the crowd, snappin’ pics with fans. Good times had by all!
As one of the pioneers of NYC street photography, Ricky has always given back. Thanks for giving the youngin’s our time to shine, others take note! All works will be on display until November 4th, so make sure to check it out!
