“Andy Warhol’s House” Wine Reception and Artist Q&A with David Gamble
3pm-4pm | Hilton Asmus Contemporary | Booth A15

Carefully composed and impeccably executed, Gamble’s images provide a rare opportunity to piece together fragments of Warhol’s notoriously reserved persona. From the more intimate objects like his watch and wig, and the best-kept secrets neatly lined up in his bathroom cabinet, to the boldly colored Fiesta dishware, Gamble’s outstanding photographs capture Warhol’s personality as seen through the everyday objects that so profoundly inspired his work.
