Paul RIchards drip paintings

If you live in or spend time in NYC, you've undoubtedly stepped on the work of Paul Richard. His ubiquitous drip paintings led to bigger and better things as mentioned in this piece from the Colossal blog:

Photos from the Affordable Art Fair - NYC, October 3-6, 2013


 The annual Affordable Art Fair (work priced under $10k) in NYC is at The Tunnel on 11th Ave between 27th and 28th Streets, from Wed Oct. 3-Sun. Oct 6. Below are some shots from the opening preview. This is not to be confused with the so-called "starving artist" shows, the AAF is curated and limited to appr 50 galleries. It's a great opportunity to see new work, not terribly avant-garde (after all, the show is about collectors hoping to score an artist's work before it blows up as well as exposure and sales for artists and galleries) but there's enough meat on the bones of this show to chew on.


 









Please note: in the shameless self-promotion category, the below are of my work at Booth A-20 with the S. Artspace Gallery from NY.
