Would you like to see highlights of one of the world’s largest contemporary art fairs?
I am excited to share top picks from my annual pilgrimage in March to New York City for The Armory Show, a massive fair featuring over 210 galleries from 30 countries, plus other art fairs happening in Manhattan during the same time.
It is a weeklong feast of art! Along with The Armory Show, I packed in visits to five other art fairs, including The Art Show of ADAA and Volta NY, attended several special art events and dropped by numerous galleries in NYC.
I am pleased to give you my recommendations for the top contemporary art fairs in 2013. Mark your calendar!

Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Sale on November 13th reached the highest total of any auction category in Sotheby’s long history, raking in over $375 million (beating the firm’s previous record of $362 million set at Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Sale in May 2008). World record auction prices were attained for five artists: Hans Hofmann, Arshile Gorky, Robert Motherwell, Wade Guyton and Jackson Pollock, with Pollock’s “Number 4, 1951,” selling for $40.4 million. A seminal large-scale 1954 painting by Mark Rothko was the top lot in the auction at $75.1 million.

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!
