Art New York 2016 at Pier 94
Yesterday May 7th 2016 I had the privilege to visit the Art New York Art Fair and also visit the Context New York art fair right next door. I enjoyed all the art and found it to be a much larger event than last year. The Galleries were top notch and the art being exhibited was beautiful, interesting and thought provoking. I was glad to see a lot of art with red dots next to them as good sales at the art fair will lead to more and larger events in the future. I was glad to see many Latino Art Galleries and artists on display and overjoyed at the large group of Cuban Artists in many of the galleries at the event. I thank Art New York and Context New York for creating such a wonderful event with so many top galleries and beautiful art for all to enjoy…
