Ann Nitze and Evelyn Tompkins in collaboration with Ritika Ravi of IVAR and the fashion house, ETRO, presented on October 4th, “Pink Muse” an exhibition of works by the late iconic Abstract Expressionist artist, Helen Frankenthaler, and watercolors by Hawaii and New York based artist, Debra Drexler.

In response to the beauty of these abstract works including Frankenthaler’s Tales of Genji IV (1998), IVAR created a unique pair of sapphire and diamond drop earrings, “Pink Legends” for the exhibition and ETRO previewed their mini pink Vela Bag from their new Fall-Winter Collection celebrating a shared inspiration by the color pink.

Lovers of the New York School of painting abstraction, jewelry, and fashion also gathered to celebrate the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons and oohed and aahed over two darling tiny Chihuahua recue puppies, Ulu and Bindy who are looking for their forever home. 10% of the proceeds from this exhibition will benefit the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons.
