MOST ARTISTS AT THE CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR NYC WORK ON MULTIPLE PIECES SIMULTANEOUSLY BUT THE MUSE INSPIRES THEM AT DIFFERENT TIMES

Released: May 13, 2014

The Tunnel in Chelsea was filled with artists at last weekend's Contemporary Art Fair NYC so we took advantage of the unusual situation--most major art fairs are populated with galleries, not independent established and emerging artists—to ask a few questions. The chance to learn more about how some of the artists work—and when--was both tempting and fruitful. Most work on more than one piece at a time and they prefer to—or do—work at all hours of day and night. We asked 14 exhibitors--a mix of fine artists and sculptors, a photographer, furniture maker and jeweler—if they work on one p...

“Ardyh” by Elizabeth Krall

ARTISTS AT THE CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR NYC MAY 8-11 WHOSE ROUTE TO ART WAS CIRCUITOUS

Released: May 1, 2014

Some of the artists exhibiting at the Contemporary Art Fair NYC postponed their passion to create and only in time focused on their work, came to it by a circuitous route or followed other paths simultaneously.

The Good and Plenty: Midcentury and Jewelry Among Top Lots on April 6th.

Released: April 9, 2014

Antique decorative items may have brought the top individual prices, but both midcentury and jewelry selections held the majority of top sellers overall on April 6th at Clarke Auction.
