Steve back in L.A.

ON THE TOWN; Pg. 17
OUT & ABOUT With A.L. GORDON

The New York art set had a good excuse to fly out to Los Angeles this weekend: Larry Gagosian's West Coast gallery opened an exhibit of new paintings by Christopher Wool, followed by an "intimate" dinner at Mr. Chow. Mingling Thursday night were art consultant Sandy Heller, man about town Rufus Albemarle, and those lovely women who show up at all the right places, Peggy Siegal, Claudia Cohen, Amy Sacco, Allison Sarofim, and Olivia Chantecaille. Oh, there were celebrities, too: a fixture of the contemporary art social circuit, Steve Martin; and Kirsten Dunst, Dennis Hopper, Juliette Binoche, and Julia Ormond. They looked particularly relaxed, as they weren't up for Academy Awards. On this night, the coveted prize was one of Mr. Wool's paintings, large canvases in neutral tones, some accented with silver spray paint.

Those who stayed for the weekend got the rest they needed before the next big art event begins Thursday, back in New York: the Armory Show, and all the parties, gallery events, and offshoot fairs that take place around it.
