Armory Show 2014 Picks

During Armory Arts Week this year I ran from open studios to opening receptions to the Armory Show and the Volta show, hopping on and off those those fabulous Citibikes on a freezing cold day! My brain was overwhelmed by the end of the day but as usual with these kind of events, I was left in awe, inspired, encouraged and fired up! I found the Armory Show to be a little less edgy this year with not so many attention grabbing pieces - for attention grabbing sake - and a little more art that I could relate to. So here are a few pieces that I picked out for one reason or another. Composition, expression, movement, emotion or maybe technical skill are factors that draw me to certain pieces. Some I could imagine in my apartment!
