Saul Ostrow is an art critic, curator, and professor. He founded Critical Practices, Inc. in 2010 to support new practices in the arts. His art collection features museum-worthy pieces by artists he knows personally. On Sunday afternoon, Saul Ostrow hosted Victory Club members and veterans of majestic disorder magazine to an intimate luncheon at his loft in Chelsea.
The afternoon began with vino and a lecture. Saul gave background on his work and collection and then David Goodman, a painter whose work appears in Saul's collection and is the director of CPI's programming, spoke about the painting of his that hangs in Saul's living room.
Everyone sat for lunch.
Majestic Disorder's senior features writer, Callahan Tormey (who flew from Chicago for the event,) and graphic designer, Vicente Vasquez, spoke about the London-based magazine's mission. There was a copy of Issue IV at each place, and guests gushed over it. The editors of the London-based magazine came to the Victory Club pop up in London ... and the rest is history!
Stephanie illustrated the summery menu, which featured products from D'Artagnan.
Saul Ostrow most loves 3 things: foie gras, vodka, and cigars. While there was no vodka on Sunday, there was truffle foie gras from D'artagnan, a food purveyor that provides the best quality meats, charcuterie, and mushrooms. There were also Cohiba cigars.
It was a wonderful afternoon. Thank you, Saul!
