ANNOUNCEMENT: Gramercy Bistro features Danny O work as part of re-opening

This news release was supplied by Angela Cardinali for Gramercy Bistro:

North Adams, Mass. (April 14, 2006) – Gramercy Bistro, the
French-influenced bistro serving creative American cuisine, will
feature the work of Berkshire-based artist Daniel “Danny O” O’Connor as
part of a grand reopening in its newly renovated and expanded space.

Beginning April 20, six of Danny O’s framed canvas works will be
mounted at the downtown restaurant in a semi-permanent exhibit. All of
the works will depict buildings and streetscapes of North Adams, also
known as the Steeple City. At the same time, the restaurant will unveil
a new barroom, Side Bar at Gramercy Bistro, and a new Spring menu.

A native of Lexington, Mass., Danny O’s work is a vibrant and
imaginative take on everyday scenes. An instinctive recycler inspired
by pop culture and objects from everyday life, Danny O creates collage
art using a range of media. Vintage album covers serve as the canvas
for his unique art, which he creates using recycled magazine and
newspaper clippings as well as Scotch Tape.

“Danny O’s collage prints are a perfect complement to the ambience at
Gramercy Bistro and we are thrilled to feature his works as part of our
grand reopening,” said chef-owner Alexander ‘Sandy’ Smith who has been
decorating his walls with artists’ works at his restaurants – including
Williamstown’s former Cobble Café and Wild Amber Grill – for more than
15 years.

Berkshire residents may recognize some of Danny O’s work from visits
to MASS MoCA, Chesterwood and the DeCordova Museum. In the Boston area
his works have been featured at a Prudential Skywalk show, works
displayed at Logan Airport and the walls of Children’s Hospital. Danny
O has been featured in Boston Magazine and works with the Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

In a neighborhood that appreciates good food and culture, Danny O’s
art offers the perfect complement to complete an exceptional dining
experience. Each work on exhibit at Gramercy Bistro will be for sale
for $500.
