Artexpo New York 2014

Six pieces from my Passages series to be shown at Artexpo New York

One week from today I will be standing in my booth at Artexpo New York. This art exhibition has been running for 35 years in NYC but this will be my first time exhibiting. If you are in or close to New York, this is definitely going to be a must see event. There are over 400 exhibitors and more than 17,000 people have already gotten their tickets online.


Artexpo New York is being held at Pier 94, on the Hudson River on the West Side of NYC. 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.


Artexpo is really three shows in one. The Solo Pavilion includes emerging and mid-career artists who have been juried in. I am part of this area, in booth S210. Artexpo also includes a more traditional exhibition area which is gallery-based. Finally, there is the Deco Expo Showcase which focuses on art and framing.

Those of you who are able to attend can also take advantage of a huge array of educational opportunities hosted by well-known industry professionals at the Topic & Trends Education Series. There are nearly 25 seminars, demonstrations and lectures over the course of the three days. For example, special guest David Bromstad, winner of the first HGTV Design Star, will be speaking on Friday.

The exhibition is open on Friday April 4 from 10am-7pm, Saturday April 5 from 10am-7pm, and Sunday April 6 from 10am-6pm. There is an opening night party being held on Friday from 4-7pm - and this includes food, drink and gift bags to all attendees. Tickets for the Artexpo are $20 but if you contact me directly, I can provide you with complimentary admission.

I have not yet had time to photograph all of my work, but I have been shooting detail shots along the way. Here are just a few...

you always give me such creative thoughts. I just recently purchased a vintage cabinet card family book from an antique store that was closing.The binding was broken but the cover and photos are in place minus one page.I am really thinking on that book now.Thanks for the inspiration.
