Best known as a jewelry and accessory designer, Barry Kieselstein-Cord has also taken photographs for years and he combed his archives for “BYO Champagne,” the 150-image debut exhibit at KCX Gallery on Franklin Avenue in Millbrook, New York, open now through January 1. 


Cord says he’s shot 150,000 images over the years, with a diverse set of subjects:  millionaires, bartenders, models, friends, gym owners, polo players and fishmongers.  “The famous, the infamous and the completely obscure all have their place on the gallery wall,” he says.  “This is how I see the world.”  A visual perfectionist, he’s here turned his eye on moments of unguarded pleasure, intimacy and happiness in peoples lives. There is a candid intimacy in this show that spans the decades from the 1970s to today. 


The opening reception on December 2 attracted Perrin and  Greg Berky-Martin, Zoe Woods-Bontique, Sara Glaister, Eric Roberts, Sara Nesbitt, Frederic Fekkai, Robert Kaus, Alecia and Daniel Adams, Don Rosendale, Pam Taylor and Eames Yates, Sara and Jacqueline Al-Juaid, Philip Kasofky, Kevin Smith, Johanna Roote, Michel Jean, J.A.Tomasin, Matt and Mary Chalkins, William Groog, Robin and David Lowensrein, Elaine Francine Feder, Julia Brown, Cynthia Hochswender, Henry Boehinger, Elisabeth Bravalle, Alisa Fastenberg, Gwen Nestel, Peter and Cathy Morrell, Patty Goodwich, Francis White, Gregory Kahn and Libby Mavrolian.
