ART - Opening # 2 Designer and antique dealer, John Derian, who is famous for his beautiful decoupage plates and paperweights, hosted a show for French arts and crafts artist, Nathalie Lete in his shop on 2nd Street. It was Nathalie's first New York exhibition. Lete is half Dutch and half Chinese and her work is inspired mostly by her childhood memories, her travels and her joie de vivre, as well as, the bonheur that colors give her. Her work is colorful, poetic and naive, I particularly liked her notebooks and postcards with images of Parisian tourist attractions which are partly painted over with her whimsical designs.
