Harriette Rose Katz’s elite event collective The Chosen Few has done it once again in a haute collaboration with artist Michael Jurick. Over 200 guests got to enjoy the Infrared exhibition at The Glasshouses on Monday, May 16th. The night was filled with Jurick’s incredible photographs and multimedia pieces as attendees enjoyed music by Chosen Few member Total Entertainment and lighting by Chosen Few’s Frost Lighting. It was only further enhanced by light bites from Matt Miller Events and panoramic views of our beloved New York City.
Michael then took to the floor to say, “Infrared is invisible, radiant energy. Radiant is the key word in that definition. To radiate joy, to radiate love and to radiate creativity permeates all that I do.” He continued, “At the second annual induction to The Chosen Few I had a vision to collaborate with the most talented designers in New York, so we could interpret these never before seen photographs with a touch of color and concept.”
The exhibition displayed 12 diverse photographs by Michael Jurick accompanied by seven collaborative experiential artworks created by a selection of The Chosen Few members including Frank Alexander, Jennifer Gould of Diana Gould, Ltd., Pat James & Glenn Jacinto, Jen Stone & Marco Olmi, DeJuan Stroud, Anthony Taccetta, and designer Beth Banker.
Harriette Rose Kat’z concluded the night with a few wonderful words, “This is a room filled with people from the most creative corners of New York City and how did we all end up here…The Chosen Few. I created this highly selective organization in order to recognize the best of the best in each category in the events world.” She continued, “Michael Jurick, one of the most talented and lovely photographers I have ever had the pleasure of working within my career, came to my house last summer to show me his infrared photography and I was totally blown away.”
