Anna Delvey makes a virtual appearance at her NYC art show from federal prison

Anna Delvey was back on the Manhattan art scene – virtually – on Thursday night as the bogus heiress remains in federal custody fighting attempts to deport her to Germany.

Delvey, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, spoke to her patrons via video during her one-night art exhibition at the Public Hotel in Nolita, according to the Sun.

The exhibit, titled Allegedly, features the art she made during her detention by US Customs and Immigration.

The former con artist-turned-artist served nearly four years in prison on charges of defrauding friends and businesses in New York out of $275,000 by pretending to be someone else.

The 31-year-old subject of a Netflix drama remains in ICE custody in Orange County state while attorneys challenge her deportation to her home country of Germany.

“Hello everyone, Anna Delvey here,” her video appearance reportedly began.

“I’m so excited to unveil my very first art collection entitled ‘Allegedly’. This is a collection of sketches I made while I was in ICE Orange County,” explained the wannabe socialite, with her irreplaceable European accent.

“I studied fashion management in Paris and didn’t really draw until my exam.

“You have heard so many voices, but this is the beginning of my story, my narration from my perspective.

“I hope you enjoy the show.”

The event included an open bar and a specialty cocktail called “Anna on ICE,” according to the report.

It’s the notorious SoHo poisoner’s second foray into the downtown art scene after her “Free Anna” show in March at a pop-up on the Lower East Side that featured her prison art.

“I wanted to capture some of the moments over the past several years, both never-before-seen and iconic, with the limited tools at my disposal,” she told Page Six earlier this week.

“Some of the pieces are simple, others are more abstract and will be unique in meaning and appearance to the viewer.”

Her 9×12 sketches cost about $10,000 each, her art seller Chris Martine said.

“Artwork is often more than the visual element, it’s the story behind it that people really buy,” Martine told Page Six. “If you look at her sketches, she has legitimate talent.”

Delvey sold the rights to her con story to the Netflix series Inventing Anna for $320,000.
