The Max Factor

The Max Factor

One thing you have to say about the artist Peter Max: Over the last 40 years, he has done more with “love” as a subject than anyone outside of perhaps Hallmark and Dear Abby.

Max’s trippy posters first appeared in the late 1960s, when their bell-bottomed guys and gals, rubbery lettering and trails of multicolored planets and stars very much captured the cosmic dorm-room vibe of the day. But while those students long ago moved out of their bell-bottoms and into something else, Max has stayed pretty firmly entrenched, like one of those old hippies you see wandering through the aisles of a Vermont co-op grocery store.

If you’d like to catch for yourself what Max is up to these days, head for the Geary Gallery in Darien Nov. 4-7 for an exhibit of his works, or join him for a “Meet the Artist” reception Nov. 6 & 7. For more info, call 203- 655-6633 or visit
