Dr. Swancoat Delivers Babies & Art

IMG_5264Chelsea, New York City – Friday, March 1, 2013

The Steven Swancoat show at Phantom Audio was a packed bowl of mixed art collectors ( to borrow the title of Phantom curator Frankie Velez’s Facebook page).  This was the first time a Phantom crowd was more populated with PHDs than MFAs. There is a reason. . .when he’s not in the studio painting, Swancoat moonlights as a full time OB/GYN delivering babies and repairing pelvises.

This mixed bowl of mixed professions combined with the low sticker price on the paintings, and the added charity element of $25 from every piece sold going to Ovarian Cancer Research resulted in a slew of red dots in a short period of time, with lots of disappointment over potential buyers hesitating and losing out on pieces they loved.

By the end of the night Swancoat toasted the nearly sold out show just minutes before a smoke alarm was pulled and myself and the last of the attendees we hustled down 10 flights of smoky stairs to the street, only to find a still burning piece of cardboard.
