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!
Well we are back from New York and we are beat! If you call the office today, go easy on Alexa, it was a late night traveling. We still have tons of our own photographs to go through from the fair, which should be posted tomorrow. In the meantime, we have a final round of images submitted by our guest photo blogger, Lee Gainer. Last time she checked in, Gainer had sent images from Armory and Scope. Now she shares her favorite pieces from the VOLTA fair (one of our favorites!). See her pictures after the jump, and be sure to come back tomorrow for our staff favorites from Armory, Volta, and Independent.

Our guest photo bloggers are on the ground and covering fairs in NYC this weekend. We first heard from Lee Gainer, a painter from Arlington, VA, who sent some notable pieces from the Armory Show and Scope Art Fair. Gainer noted that, “Scope was lean this year. Due to gusty winds, the tent was rockin’! It also made the floor twist a bit and some works on pedestals were in danger of tipping. Funny thing, there were many works involving doughnuts or optical illusions using mirrors…While Scope had doughnuts, the Armory had many (!) mirrored and or chromed works. Also the free Nordic gallery section posters was a big hit. Many guests were grabbing at least one of each. Later that evening, two lovely young ladies knocked over a large multi-chair sculpture with their rolled poster bundles. They left in an embarrassed shuffle, leaving behind a few of their posters but the sculpture was unharmed. Sculpture 1, guest 0.”
Check out one of Lee’s paintings directly below, and see her favorites from Scope after the jump! And look for more pictures throughout the weekend.
