The old truism that artists don’t attend art fairs is no longer true.
There were plenty of artists prowling the aisles of the New York art fairs along with the rest of us this week. There were also lots of artists standing by their work.
It’s become common to find artists stationed alongside their dealers at the art fairs these days, not only at Volta, whose one-artist one-booth policy has long encouraged artist participation, but at other venues uptown and down. Here are some artists spotted with their creations at the Art Show, the Armory Show, and Volta.
