The second day of Hunter Biden's art show in New York City featured a small number of attendees, with a total of three visitors allowed entrance to the event.
The art gallery utilized a team of lawyers to vet anyone who desired to see the show, making it nearly impossible for normal visitors to attend the event. Some who were denied access to the event had to peer inside through the windows to get a glimpse of Biden's art, according to the New York Post.
“You’re not going to see much of a crowd today,” art gallery owner Georges Berges told the outlet.
The three who did enter the gallery had mostly positive reviews. A Republican man who identified himself as “Sal” from New Jersey shared positive feelings toward Biden's artworks, saying, "his paintings were very good." Though impressed with the artwork, Sal did not say if he intends to buy any of it, the outlet reported.
Osvaldo Jimenez, a visitor denied access to the art gallery, said the best thing the art gallery did "was not let me in." Pointing in the direction of Prince Street, Jimenez said a booth over there "has better work than this s—t,” according to the outlet.
Hunter Biden and his works have been a hotly contested topic in recent months as critics question the legality of the president's son making his way in the world of fine art. Republicans on Oct. 21 pressed Attorney General Merrick Garland on ethical concerns surrounding Biden's art as pieces sell for as much as $500,000.
Chinese business records also indicate Hunter Biden still appears to hold a 10% equity stake in a Chinese government-linked firm.
