Dispatched a crack team to cover this weekend's York, PA show. The show always features a top notch collection of dealers and is hoping to build on encouraging signs seen in New York last weekend. Report to follow. Also, Harvey Pranian- long time Chicago dealer is trying out a new idea. Harvey has assembled a group of artists for a "pop up" gallery in Evanston, Illinois.
To quote the release:
"As the recession has taken its toll on retailing, empty stores throughout the Chicago area are turning into “pop-up” art galleries. The temporary galleries, which began in London and have also sprung up in New York, Paris and other cities, provide a showcase for many artists at a time when conventional galleries are closing or struggling to survive. Whether the popularity of the temporary galleries can help revive business activity in their neighborhoods is hard to assess, but if offers an exciting cultural opportunity for artists and public alike."
