A few weeks ago I was at Salon 94, now called LGDR. It’s a tough name change for me, not unlike Whole Foods as I still call them Fresh Fields. Anyway, I was asking the gallery attendant when the next exhibition would be and he told me there would be an opening on April 12th for a new Marilyn Minter exhibition. I promptly put the … Continue reading Marilyn Minter in New York, NY
Happy Valentine’s Day, my dear readers! I’ve always liked the work of Wayne Branum. Learn more about his work and career on his website. While you are looking, grab a few of his last remaining pieces as I recently found out he is retiring. I bought this butter dish as a Valentine’s gift for my husband. I am confident he will like it!

I have every neighborhood in NYC figured out in terms of what route I should take when I’m looking for art. I do lots of research, make a plan and head out with my handwritten list in hand. I went to see the Eli Ping and Covey Gong show in what I think of as Chinatown. Neighborhoods have been renamed since back when I lived … Continue reading Laurie Simmons in New York, NY
I was in town during the Art Dealers Association of America’s annual fair, the Art Show. I love shows at the Park Avenue Armory. The space is grand, and I always feel just a slight bit elegant walking up the stairs and into the entry of the beautiful lobby. It takes me just minutes to feel invisible and underdressed. The crowd at any Armory event … Continue reading The ADAA Art Show at the Park Avenue Armory in New York, NY
It was a first for me to go the to IFPDA Print Fair at the Javits Center. The windows in the upper level space made for a beautiful venue, albeit hard to photograph as it was a wonderful bright sunny day. There were 76 in-person exhibitors at this art fair dedicated to prints and printmaking from new editions to old masters. I am showing you … Continue reading IFPDA Print Fair 2022 in New York, NY
It was really fun to be at an art fair in Seattle last night. Most of us were masked, but you could tell everyone was smiling. My two favorite booths were Stoney Road Press (Dublin, Ireland) and John Natsoulas Gallery (Davis, California). Perhaps I am partial as I know both of the galleries quite well, but I truly thought they did a great job of … Continue reading Seattle Art Fair in Seattle, WA
I’m stepping away from the classic Art Basel fairs, to tie in the INK Miami Art Fair. Like Aqua, INK takes place at a Miami motel. The galleries are on the first floor, and many of the gallery owners stay on the second floor. The show has an open courtyard feel, and after all the years of tagging along with my brother and sister-in-law I’ve come to know the different galleries, owners, staff and the work they showcase. INK, on a whole, couldn’t be more welcoming… Continue reading INK Miami Art Fair in Miami Beach, FL
