The amazing art was a ‘given’ at the various venues; it was the high end of the high end of the fine contemporary art market. Pieces featured for sale ran the full gamut up and coming emerging artists to Picassos, Matisses and Rauschenbergs. The energy and excitement was contagious. The international crowd made for some fantastic people watching. I even had a few brushes with fame: Serena Williams & Martha Stewart!
Art critics abound, I am not a critic; I do collect, I study, and I know what I like but again I do not claim to be a critic. My expertise is in framing, and art presentation, so my purpose here is simply to share what I observed through my ‘framer’s eye’ (and captured with an iphone) that may inspire new ideas for you to try out for your next project or body of work.

An original Picasso for sale. Of course, the price wasn’t listed and I was afraid to ask. Notice the white floater within another white floater frame. It looks like I need to find something like this to add to our line.
