Heyy everyone! Happy Friday!! I hope you’re all doing well! For all of you Art savy NYC locals, you may have known yesterday about these huge art fairs happeningaround the town. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend my first (yay!) at the Art Miami New York Fair down on pier 94 as a VIP guest and it was soo awesome!
Of course, the moring preparing for this event was to me,an imporatnt outfit choice day. Duh. I wanted to look stylish, clean and have an art edge all at once. I turned to white jeans automatically thinking they would give the right vibe for such an occasion. It was a little chilly yesterday so a jacket was definitely in need and I know you might have seen this one before on me, but I can’t help myself. The color is so perfect!! Plus I want to wear it as much as I can before we officially are in summer mode. The combination of leopard and coral makes my heart flutter. These two could possibly be my favotire things to wear…like ever. Aside from sparkles. If those three are in one outfit its the trifecta of outfit heaven!
There were SO MANY artists it was so overwhelming to strollthrough this huge space and stumble upon so many amazing works of art from so many talented people. Being an art student myself, I must say the inspiration level was high. One of my favorite artists there was Antonio Marra’s paintings. Go check them out, SO cool.
Anyway strolling through the various gallery areas with Jason, we were totally outnumbered by the socialite status of all the buyers, dealers and just plain ready to spend a pretty penny on a piece for themselves. Never seeing an art fair for myself before and being acustomed to the gallery or museum scene, it was a transforamtion to see art in such a way that people saw the pieces as a part of everyday business and profit situation. I guess they try to steer you away from that thinking in the art school and leave that to the business school goers.
Overall, however I took my college lever art eye to the works and loved every moment of it! It was a great way to expand my knowledge of whats out there for contemporary artists and what posibilities are held in the future. There was also, to my delight, a large number of works that the artist involved GLITTER and sparkle! (eek!)
If any of you are around the area I highly suggest you go check this out! More info here!
Have a beautiful weekend everyone!
