March Madness: The Art Fairs 2015

Marjorie van Cura, Untitled 0115, 2015
at Madelyn Jordon Fine Art 
Scope, 639 West 46th St., March 6 - 8

The Art Fairs Are Here!  The Art Fairs Are Here!   So grab your cappuccino and head for the Westside of Manhattan, from midtown to Chelsea - and parts off the beaten trail.  You are going to need plenty of caffeine, comfy shoes and lots of Visine.  
Moreover, quit when you cannot "see" anymore.   It's okay to leave without looking at every single work of art.  Be discerning.  Glance often.  Sometimes graze (yes, as in mindful study).  Above all, use your time well.
