An intimate crowd of the well-dressed (and undressed) gathered at Di Donna Galleries in Manhattan Tuesday evening for a drawing party benefiting the New York Academy of Art. Kristy Hinze-Clark, Naomi Watts, and Di Donna gallery owner Christina Di Donna hosted the event, bringing together many of their closest friends and Academy supporters. Among the group were Eileen Guggenheim, Derek Blasberg, Lauren Santo Domingo, Brett Heyman, Sylvana Ward Durrett, Wendi Murdoch, and Zani Gugelmann.
Amid cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres, guests were greeted by Academy president David Kratz, and an Academy instructor took them through a drawing demonstration. From there patrons settled in to try their own hand at sketching the live nude models.
