Hi.

My name is Dina. I am an art buyer from Amman, Jordan and my blog is about my art travels! Welcome to my escapades!

When it comes to art shows, this is in a different league altogether!

If you talk class, sophistication, and a somewhat exclusive flair, the Art Dealers Association of America organizes this annual show down to a T.  The outcome is a very ‘Uptown’ New York feel.

America’s top notch art galleries showed group shows and/or solo exhibitions. Notably many of the solo shows were by female artists.

Many art experts have gone as far as to say that almost all the artworks at the show were of museum standard. And I totally agree that between the Picasso’s and Betty Tomkins’, one for sure experiences many moments of awe.

New lower East Side galleries were in perfect juxtaposition to the usual well-established uptown players and to me that added a fresh and exciting flavor to an already beautiful show.

All the art was overwhelmingly beautiful, but I must say I truly appreciated the unique and beautiful photograms at Hans P. Kraus Jr. Inc. 

I also adored the miniature photorealism paintings by Elisheva Biernoff at Fraenkel Gallery They are sure to fascinate you with their lifelike details, and will take you back to another era and another time.

Freezing, freezing, freezing! That’s what I can say about NYC in March (although one of the five days was warm and I didn’t even need to wear a jacket! Go figure). So after taking the subway to The Art Show, it would be a good idea to walk around and maybe do some uptown shopping. That is, if you find it in you to get some fresh air and walk in the cold.
