NY Print Fair Review

--> This year's NY IFPDA Print Fair at the Park Avenue Armory ended Sunday evening, November 10.  We are still unpacking, but with an eye to shipping to Flint and then Miami for Red Dot.
It was a beautiful fair, extremely well attended from opening bell to closing.  

Alice Trumbull Mason, Lip's Edge, 1950

The Alice Trumbull Mason and Women of the Atelier 17 installation attracted lots of attention.  The centerpiece was Mason's Lip's Edge, 1950, which looked more modern than some of the contemporary pieces in the room.  Surface Tension was another favorite.  Intaglios by Minna Citron, Dorothy Dehner, Sue Fuller (including her seven piece Lancelot and Guinevere, and Concerto, Proof Set with Collage), and Fannie Hillsmith, rounded out Mason's Atelier 17 colleagues.

Our Cities Shift collection featuring Michael J, Gallagher, Hugh Mesibov, and Angelo Pinto, was opposite the American Modernism wall with works by William Baziotes, Edmond Casarella, Peter Grippe, Franz Kline, Dorothy Browdy Kushner, Louis Lozowick, Anne Ryan, Louis Schanker, and Ansei Uchima.
