The Armory Show

This year marks the centennial of The Armory Show.  The show brings artwork from around the world and puts it all under one roof for all to see.  Since 1913 it has been very instrumental in the way Americans look and interact with all forms of art.  As in the past, this year’s show brings together a large number of influential photo galleries from around the world and those located here in NYC.  For a list of some of the photo galleries involved (with photographs) visit Le Journal de la Photographie.  For The Armory Show web site click on the image above.  It’s definitely worth a visit.

NY Times Portfolio Review

A free two day gathering of the 60 top photo editors, publishers, gallery owners and curators together with 160 talented photographers, both established and up-and-coming, for a weekend.  What a fantastic opportunity for photographers.  All brought to you by New York Times Lens blog.  For a list of reviewers and additional information click HERE.  For more information on how to apply visit the Call for Submissions HERE .

An Art Walk

My first year in NYC was kind of a whirlwind tour de force.  There is so much going here.  It can certainly get overwhelming.  But if you pick one or two things per week it can be manageable.  This week (actually tomorrow) is the Chelsea Art Walk.  If you’re in NYC I would highly recommend going.  Twenty-two galleries all within walking distance from each other.
