The contemporary art world converges in New York City this week for the annual Armory Show and other art fairs around Manhattan. I enjoy attending the New York art fairs each year, and here I am again, in search of engaging artworks for my clients.
The 2012 edition of The Armory Show art fair is scaled down in size from previous years, which I found to be a good thing. More meat, less fat!
Check out my art fair photos to experience some of my top picks from the 2012 Armory Show. Like what you see? Feel free to contact me for more infomation.
Visitors enter The Armory Show contemporary art fair at Pier 94 along the Hudson River in New York City. The Armory Show is March 8 - 11, 2012.
