We tend to have rather a Guinness Book of Records mentality when it comes to New York - Len Lye first to have work collected by MoMA, Billy Apple first to show with Andy Warhol, Max Gimblett first to have a painting shown in the Guggenheim. Having said that, as firsts go, Peter Stichbury being featured in the New Yorker’s 20 September issue is right up there. His exhibition at the Tracy Williams gallery is trumpeted in a large (two columns by 13.5 centimetre) editorial pic of his painting Estelle 5 in the middle of the gallery listings and reviews section and review here on their web page.
