I went to NYC yesterday to several of the art fairs and down to Chelsea. It was very quiet at the ADAA so it was easy to see the work: Joseph Cornell, Hannalore Baron, Philip Guston and more. Pulse was in a surprising small venue but had a bit more of a "pulse" going on.

I took a few photos of some of what resonated for me .

Hi Lisa--I am so happy to have discovered your blog. Thanks for showing the shot of your NYC trip, and the shots of your show in an earlier post. What a great body of work! It just blows me away! I particularly enjoyed that interview. I'm a big fan. Wm

This was an excellant post. Tara Donovan's work boggled my mind! Pat Steir's work was beautiful as well!
