The birds or the bunnies?   This was the decision John Demsey was making Tuesday night – which of Hunt Slonem’s paintings to keep – at a book-signing he co-hosted with Alex Assouline for the artist’s latest coffee table book “Gatekeeper: World of Folly”


The hefty book chronicles the bold restoration and redesign Slonem did of the 102,000 square foot Colonel Louis Watres Armory, built in 1900 in Scranton where the artist lives on weekends.  Slonem, who has a penchant for buying and restoring enormous historic homes, already has his eye on the next one in Pennsylvania.


Guests standing in line to buy a copy were Liliana Cavendish, Anne Hearst McInerney, Bettina Zilkha, Candace Bushnell, Jim Coleman, Sharon Bush, Diandra Douglas, Marylin Gauthier, Tracey Amon, Jennifer Creel, Chele Chiavacci Farley, Peter Thomas Roth, Robert Zimmerman, Alina and Kim Cho, Alex Papachristidis, Scott Nelson and Keith Barish.


Demsey, the Estee Lauder exec who is engaged in a never-ending re-design of his own (he moved into the art and photography-filled UES fun-house that he shares with five dogs and three cats only two doors down from his previous home) was still polling guests–birds or bunnies–at the end of the evening.
