Armory weekend is here- the biggest art event of the year in NYC bringing around 80K tourists from around the world to see the newest art on the market. The main event at piers 92 & 94 spawned around 30 concurrant art events throughout the city, including the Fountain Art Fair at 25th and Lexington, where I'll be showing with Yes! Gallery.
Today at Fountain the VIP doors open from 1-7 with a party immediately following at the original 1913 Armory Building. I should arrive around 5:30 at the Yes! booth where I'll have several works up.
Yes! Gallery took a small selection of paintings and drawings for the Fountain Fair from my current solo show, Alé Alé (link there for press release and a slideshow of works), up in Greenpoint at 147 India running through March 18th. The Brooklyn Yes! Gallery location is on the Armory Weekend official BK visitor's map. I'll be in Greenpoint at the gallery tomorrow for the tour (Sat, March 10th) where gallery hours have been extended to 10pm for the day.
