experience the art world
Whether you’re looking to buy or simply to expand your knowledge of Contemporary art, join me on a visit to a museum or gallery exhibition, auction preview, art fair, or artist’s studio!
I love to explore Manhattan's four primary gallery neighborhoods: Chelsea, the Lower East Side, Fifty-Seventh Street, and the Upper East Side. Each has its own personality. There are also three major auction houses in New York that hold Contemporary sales: Sotheby's, Christie's, and Phillips. Each holds a number of annual auctions for Contemporary art, editioned work (prints), and photographs. The auctions are preceded by preview exhibitions — a great way to see a range of work.
New York also hosts two major Contemporary art fairs each spring: The Armory Show in March and Frieze in May. Coinciding with both of these fairs are a number of "satellite" fairs, catering to different tastes and budgets. In addition, there are specialized fairs throughout the year for photography, prints, outsider art, and more. I also love taking my clients to out of town fairs. Miami Basel in December is a highlight of the year, and there are good annual fairs in many American cities, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, and Seattle. Going to art fairs is a great way to view work in person and expand your base of knowledge.
