The Armory Show.....imagine a warehouse filled with the most interesting art and people in the world...where you retreat from the snow covered streets of New York for three days, mixing and mingling with all orbits of the Art World. Sounds great right!? It is.
Also it's indoors..so unlike Frieze New York, the temperature was carefully regulated.
For those that aren't familiar with Art Fairs at all...The Armory Show is definitely in the top 10 as far as quality of art and exhibitors (it's actually #8 if you want to be exact).
George Segal at Templon Gallery's booth (above).
I've been following her career progression ever since. She completley sold out the booth at the fair (no suprise).. and if you managed to get one of her works you're lucky. They went for between $5K-$50K..and that's the last time you'll see them at that price.
Another top-notch Los Angeles Gallery is Gavlak Gallery, founded by Sarah Gavlak and directed by Lauren Wood.
Thier booth was predominitely devoted to artist Andrew Brischler who does these colofrul works (above and below) and you'll never gues...COLORED PENCIL. That's got hurt his wrist....
Another first for me...which I'm kind of embaressed to admit was ByChloe - one of the most delicious "fast-food" restaurants in New York..and it's vegan.
Lyles and King Gallery brought works by Farley Aguilar (below)
