Last weekend was fun, with a trip to NYC for the art fairs. That led to quite a few posts summarizing our experiences there. We also had some great interviews throughout the week given to us by contributors Ellen C. Caldwell and Josh Reames. If you missed any of the posts, check them out below!

Our guest blogger Joshua Field was busy this weekend. In addition to the Armory and Scope (click for previous post), he made it to Fountain, Volta, and the Independent. After the jump, check out some works he was admiring at the remaining three fairs. Be sure to keep checking in over the next few days to see more from our other guest blogger, Lee Gainer, and our own New American Paintings staff.

We heard earlier from Lee Grainer at the Armory and Scope. Now it’s Joshua Field’s turn to share what caught his eye while at the fairs. Joshua is our second guest photo blogger helping us cover the fairs in New York City. We are excited to have another painter share their perspective and favorite pieces while observing the large gathering of contemporary galleries and artists in Big Apple. When I asked Joshua to share his thoughts thus far, he offered the following:
- less white neon (thank god)
- fewer skulls (apart from a few giant gold ones)
- more large caliber guns
- lots of small framed works on paper
- lots of clusters of small works (all roughly 8.5″x11″)
- much less chinaphilia
- independent got slick all of a sudden
- zwirner: huge empty booth again (really? they rep such great stuff though)
- surprising number of galleries from… istanbul
- the cobbled together floor at scope = really distracting
Check out some photos Joshua sent-in after the jump!
