PAUL STANLEY To Hit Long Island Press Next Week

December 28, 2007

KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley will be featured in several press segments in connection with his Long Island, New York Wentworth Gallery art shows. Look for Paul in Newsday and the Long Island Press. He will also make radio and TV appearances before the shows. Exact details will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.

Paul will appear at the Wentworth Gallery located at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, New York on the following days/times:

Friday, January 4, 2008 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Saturday, January 5, 2008 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

In a recent interview with's George Pennacchio, Paul Stanley stated about his art, "What I'm trying to do with my art is connect with people emotionally. I think one of the beauties of abstract art is probably that it appeals to you emotionally, rather than intellectually. I'd rather get a smile or somebody going, 'Whoa!' than somebody going, 'Hmmm.'"

Stanley's abstracts include "Green Planet", "Winter Sun" and "Purple Haze".

"I love color and somebody was describing my work and said to me, 'You know, you're fearless with color,' and I said, 'What's there to be afraid of?' You know — it's color!" said Stanley.

And he's not afraid to use color, or even his fingers, if it achieves the desired effect in a painting.

"You don't need a degree to know what good art is. Good art is what you love. When you go into a restaurant, you don't have to have someone tell you what bad food is. When you spit it out, guess what? It's bad," said Stanley.

But painting has been good for Stanley, who has found it therapeutic and eye-opening.

"I tore my rotator cuff and I had surgery five weeks ago. Ten years ago if that happened, I would have said to the doctor, 'Will I be able to play the guitar?' I said to the doctor, 'Will I be able to paint?'" said Stanley.

Paul's original works start at about $14,000, but his giclee reproductions begin at about a thousand dollars.
