Alton On The Spot puts you on the spot, with what's hot and what's not in the wonderful world of art and creativity. From the galleries and the museums, the runways and the airwaves, the streets and the stages - I seek the beauty of inspiration, high and low, anywhere and everywhere I can find it.

"In the Spotlight"
Friends in High Places. That's at least what I thought when I strolled by The Future Perfect on Great Jones Way. I looked up to see LA friend, architect and designer Matt Gagnon (with his wife, the fabulous Katrina documenting the genius at work), in the window creating his signature designs. Matt Gagnon Studios, now based in Los Angeles, has an impressive portfolio of products and services, but perhaps what Matt is best known for is his lamps. His latest design, featured in the NY storefront, is a customizable pendant created by wrapping an adjustable metal frame with various materials, from ball chain to leather chord to nylon banding. In the showroom, groups of then are clustered in a variety of shapes, colors and dimensions, creating an impressive statement.
He's there all weekend, working away, and his one-of-a-kind pieces can be purchased to brighten your world. (Side note: Matt and Katrina both looked pretty cute in their aprons too!)
