Last Wednesday evening, the masses shot down to 165 Charles Street in the West Village for the opening of Close Ups presented by Blair Clarke and Alexico Group. The exhibition presented PHOTOGRAPHS by Nevil Dwek and PAINTINGS by Alexander Vethers.

Alexander Vethers and Nevil Dwek
In the crowd: Celerie Kemble and Christina Murphy, Antony Todd, Alvin Valley, Coralie Charriol and Dennis Paul, Lorna Graev, Adelina Wong, Barbara Wilhelm, Kat Cohen, Elizabeth Fekkai, Jackie Astier, Tara Hannant, Amanda Ross, Heather Cohane, Jim Reginato.

For his first photography exhibition ever, Nevil Dwek has captured a sense of “film” through his lens. Having been a filmmaker for over ten years, Dwek’s experience as a director gives him a unique perspective on still photography. The artist often layers his pictures with images in a subtle way that feels like a dissolve between scenes in a movie.
Alexander Vethers’ paintings and photography have been exhibited in galleries, museums, and public spaces in New York, Milan, Paris, and Berlin, and are represented in private and major corporate U.S. and international collections, including the Dow Jones Collection, the Davis, Polk and Wardwell Collection, Shell Oil Collection, and the Benchiser Collection. As a creative consultant to Giorgio Armani, Calvin Klein, and Dolce & Gabbana, he has designed groundbreaking concepts for fashion shows and installations.

As part of its ongoing support for the decorative arts, Alexico Group will present a variety of exhibitions in the 165 Charles Street building during the course of the year.
