SANDRA CONSTANTINE

Born in Fort Dodge, Iowa, Sandra received her degree in fine arts from American University in Washington, DC. After moving to New York City, Constantine pursued work in photography. She later transferred her creative energies to the fashion industry, resulting in a high-profile career at Bergdorf Goodman and Henri Bendel, and as one of the founding merchants of the women’s store at Barney’s New York.

Currently, her creative practice focuses on collage, combining watercolor painting, printmaking and photography. Constantine’s work has been featured in exhibitions at the 92nd Street Y and the National Academy School. She had a solo show in the summer of 2014 at Paper Trail in Rhinebeck, New York and recently completed a limited addition print, to be featured in a portfolio for the National Academy School. Her work can also be viewed at Balsamo Antiques and Interior Design. Constantine currently lives and works in New York City.

Coconut water is the perfect beverage for restoring hydration and replenishing electrolytes lost during intensive market browsing. We’re happy to have freshly cut coconuts, plus a cocktail bar at our shows.

Closing in on $7,000 raised for Just Been Tested!

SOUNDs

 

The sweet sounds of teenage trouble washed over us with DJ HOLLYWEIRD, the New York City-based duo of artist Jill Pangallo and composer Lori Scacco. Inspired by those soft-focus teen protagonist films of the 70s & 80s (Foxes/Over the Edge/Little Darlings), HOLLYWEIRD got us feeling like we did at 15... alone in your room on a hot August night, dancing with oversized headphones on, reveling in that summertime sadness... DJ HOLLYWEIRD spun at our after-show cocktail party with these specially selected gems:

“Like Olivia Newton-John delivering pizza to a goth club.” - no one ever
