Canadian Artists Abroad: ADAC celebrates ‘Northern Lights on the East River’

Although I stopped going to art fairs a while ago, after having been to many over the years both as a ‘gallerina’ and as a critic including Art Basel, Basel Miami, Art Chicago and Frieze, they remain popular venues for collectors, curators and, of course dealers and artists to hang out and do business.

New York’s Armory Show is one of the most prestigious and it takes place from March 3 – 6 in Manhattan.

Canada’s Art Dealers Association is – as per usual – organizing some programming around Canadians participating in the fair, but this year they are celebrating Canadian expat artists in New York with a series of discussions and tours of the show.

It’s a pretty good list of artists that I thought I’d share with you.

    Im looking to sell a piece of art I inherited a couple years ago. It was painted by Morisseau and is called Exsistence Of Birds.

  5. Rick Carroll says:

    I have to say that I find Kristine Moran’s “Sidestep” quite striking. I enjoy it’s punch. Very refreshing.

    Dear Andrea Carson,

    I am so enjoying your take on the art scene from a Canadian aspect. I’ve been out of country and kind of out of touch, so I appreciate the chance to get caught up.

    I hope that you will check out my website.
