Yabba Dabba Doozy / Work Of Art, Episode 6

At left, Neumaton & right, Scales

Bravo’s Work Of Art judge and Senior Art Critic for New York Magazine Jerry Saltz, gallerist, art advisor, independent curator, collector, and tastemaker Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn and judge Yvonne Force Villareal, president and co-founder of the Art Production Fund had much to offer in their public art critiques on last night’s episode of Bravo TV’s ‘Work Of Art’. Waxing lyrical about the art’s poetic nature and comments regarding ‘Scales’ site specificity, lame references to 911 and ‘Neumaton’ being ‘too close to all the bad 60’s and 70’s minimalist works’, seemed way off the mark – episode six seemed to draw all of its inspiration from Hanna-Barbera’s Bedrock City.

UPDATE: Work Of Art contestant Nicole Nadeau, niece to Countess Luann de Lesseps (the star of Bravo TV’s ‘The Real Housewives Of New York City) and Illustrator of the Countess’s book, Class With The Countess:How To Live With Elegance And Flair , is episode 6’s selected winner. Not bad for a mediocre industrial designer (?)/girl about town.

Jonathan-Ames

It seems HBO’s Bored To Death writer, Jonathan Ames, does not own a television set. Below is a link to his Twitter pleas for a kindly stranger willing to let him come over and watch his own television show. Ames, desperate to find a television owner and HBO subscriber, used Twitter to send out distress signals>
