I spent the day today at The Pier Antique Show in NYC.
My goals were to seek visual inspiration and to go on a photo safari. With almost 500 exhibitors, both goals were easily achieved! Locals can still head to the show tomorrow, Sunday 11/24, from 10am-6pm.
The Pier Show is being held at Pier 94, on the Hudson River on the West Side of NYC.
I was excited to see the space again as I will be exhibiting there in April as part of Artexpo New York 2014. The Piers, each 1,100 feet long, were completed in 1935. While Pier 94 is exclusively used for exhibition space, the others are used as passenger terminals for cruise ships and as the home of USS Intrepid.
Given that part of the show was vintage clothing, there were a number of very fascinating people milling about. And there were a few "recognizable" people as well. But my inspiration came from the objects...
