We took a few days in New York last week to attend some of the art fairs, and it was really just what the doctor ordered. In spite of the terrible weather, the piles of slush at every crosswalk, the inability to get a taxi, and the crowds, we had a blast. The energy was great, we met a ton of wonderful artists and gallerists - and of course inhaled as much art as we could. We'll share more in the coming weeks, but for starters, we loved the work of this abstract painter trained and teaching at Yale, and showing at a local gallery in New Haven. A breath of fresh air.
