Little Apple

“The Petite Opening” is the epitome of chi-chi. It’s an artsy party happening tonight at a hair salon in West Palm Beach, organized by a trio of eccentric characters: Neil London, an advertising exec and stock-market heavyweight who counts Citibank among his clients and runs a 24-hour Internet news channel; Nico Cassanetti, creator of the reoccurring art series, Art Rx; and above all, David K, an “A-list” hairstylist from New York City who’s also written for Closer Magazine (where he crafted gems like: “For once, let us try to think about having dinner without losing ourselves in false sophistication and outmoded perceptions of identity.”). Tonight at 7, they'll debut a new loft-like salon, the David K Space, amid a blitz of multimedia art, live music, and spoken-word.

A hair salon might seem an unlikely place to exhibit art, but David K believes there’s an intimate connection between featured artist Heather Tipton’s paintings and his haircutting. "I could feel the energy and movement of my haircutting in her work,” he says. David has sheared the scalps of Donna Karan and Faye Dunaway and states grandly, “New York is wherever I am.” “The Petite Opening” features jazz singer Cat Shell and music mixed by the oddly named Selecteur de Paris.

ArtSalon’s "The Petite Opening" at the David K Space is located at 2401 N. Dixie Hwy. in West Palm Beach. The opening is free. Call 561-340-6400.
