FOR THE WINGS:
2 pounds chicken wings, drumettes and flats separated
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
FOR THE GLAZE:
1⁄4 cup Bees Knees Spicy Honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced
1 garlic clove, sliced
1⁄2 teaspoon whole peppercorns
1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne powder
Heat oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, toss wings with oil and salt. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and set a baking rack on top. Arrange wings in an even layer and bake for 45 to 50 minutes until skin is crispy and juices run clear. (Alternately, grill over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side until cooked through.)
While the wings bake, add glaze ingredients plus 1⁄4 cup water to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest for 10 minutes. Strain into a large bowl and set aside.
Use tongs to transfer wings into honey glaze and toss until thoroughly coated. Return wings to baking rack and bake for 10 minutes longer.

Combining sweet honey from the Hudson Valley with a spicy mix of chile peppers, Bees Knees Spicy Honey is great on anything from a hot slice of pizza to a warm buttered biscuit. It was fantastic on a goat's cheese, pine nut and nectarine pizza with fresh herbs. Great addition to any cheese plate.
Julian Schnabel: Symbols of Actual Life
April 19, 2018 – August 5, 2018
Since 1977, Julian Schnabel (b. 1951) has captured people’s imagination with paintings that speak to his incessant appetite for sculptural physicality, material diversity, and pictorial symbolism, resulting in ever more audaciously scaled paintings that oscillate between abstraction and figuration. This exhibition features a new body of work created for the Legion’s Court of Honor. At twenty-four by twenty-four feet, the paintings are both monumental in scale and ephemeral in nature. Exposed to the elements over the four-month run of the exhibition, they aren’t meant to last. The artist has said they “epitomize much of what are the essential characteristics of the smallest and most nascent proposals of how imagery drawing and material could be called a painting.” In addition, Schnabel is also showing eleven paintings from three distinct bodies of work, including a new series of abstractions on Mexican sack linen as well as examples from the Goat Paintings (begun in 2012) and the Jane Birkin series (1990).
Kōshirō Onchi was a Japanese print-maker born in Tokyo.
Onchi's prints range from early representational to postwar abstract prints. As an early advocate of the sōsaku-hanga movement, Onchi believed that artistic creation originates from the self. He was more interested in expressing subjective emotions through abstract prints than in replicating images and forms in the objective world. His prints evoke a lyrical and poetic mood.
Art is not to be understood by the mind but by the heart. If we go back to its origin, painting is expressed in color and form by the heart, and it should never be limited to a world of reflected forms captured by visual sense. Therefore, expression of the heart through color and forms separated from color and form in the real world is that true realm of painting.
Featured in Elle Decor, designer Brian J. McCarthy turned a classic Park Avenue apartment into a stunning, fresh space. Every room is a jewel. The artwork is amazing as well.
