Lower East Side documentarian Clayton Patterson has been getting the word out for an interesting show taking place tonight in his Essex Street gallery space.   On display will be 17 drawings, photos and a painting made by Candy Darling, the transgender artist best known for her films with Andy Warhol.

Most of Darling’s work was donated to the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, but close friend Jeremiah Newton discovered there were a few items still in his possession. They’ll be on sale at Patterson’s Outlaw Art Gallery for $700-$1000. Over the years, she was photographed by Richard Avedon, Robert Mapplethorpe, among others. Darling died in 1974. Newton spoke briefly with the Observer about the collection yesterday.

Clayton’s gallery is located at 161 Essex Street; the show will be open tonight from 7-10.
