New York Knickerbockers



It was a leap to the fast lane when Chuluota-based artist Carl Knickerbocker `"Killer Wit," Feb. 5` recently shared Madison Avenue gallery space with Pop Art icon Roy Lichtenstein.

Call it serendipity or a karmic Knickerbocker connection, but when Magidson Fine Art gallery's Lichtenstein exhibit came up one wall short, New York art agent Carole Newhouse suggested filling the hole with six of Knickerbocker's colorful social commentaries.

Newhouse herself ran into Knickerbocker's work only recently when she installed a show at the Robert Thomas Galleries on Park Avenue in Winter Park. And that's where Knickerbocker will paint live March 20 and 22 during the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival.
