New York City is the ultimate Eden, the garden of paradise, for art enthusiasts. There is never a shortage of art in Manhattan.
The age-old cliché art is all around you, you just have to look for it evidently holds true in this city.
One can get lost in The Met just as easily as they can get lost in Central Park; New York is a labyrinth of creativity and artistic exploration, the home for great artists of the world and the up-and-coming groundbreakers.
This past weekend art was all around us at the world’s largest fine arts trade show, Artexpo New York.
Held at Pier 36 from April 7 to 10, the fair showcased over 200+ local, national, and international galleries and publishers.
Presented by Redwood Art Group, this recent show is one of over 40 art fairs the group has hosted since its inception 11 years ago. Beyond New York, Redwood also hosts shows in Miami, Santa Fe, and San Diego.
The trade show serves as a gathering of qualified trade buyers and collectors, allowing independent artists to be seen on a wide scale.
A celebration of artists working in all mediums, the list of 2022 exhibitors was infinite.
Attendees meandered through a maze of booths, an impressive artist’s work filling every corner of one’s vision.
There was no shortage of impressive art from incredibly impressive artists. Art for every taste and budget was on display.
One could find glass bodice sculptures by fine artist Alexis Silk. Her feminine, delicately crafted works demonstrate the exciting possibilities of glass sculpture.
Another eye-catching sculptor, Flutter by Katie, uses real-life butterfly specimens to create beautifully intricate and iridescent displays.
Shari-Beth Susskind is another dynamic creator that immediately captivated our attention. Her art pieces are a colorful, abstract exploration of resin painting. The complexities of the layers mirror the complexities of the artist: personal trainer by day, and artist by night, Shari-Beth is the definition of a multi-hyphenate.
