Washington Square Art Show this Memorial Day Weekend!!


The 82nd Year of the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit


One of the best outdoor art shows in the Northeast is happening this Memorial Day weekend in NYC.  So if you are not out East on May 26th - 28th or June 2nd and 3rd, head on down to Washington Square East at 3rd and stroll to University Place at 12th Street.   As I mentioned in an earlier post, outdoor shows are the absolute best source for "real" affordable art.  If you are in the market for original art of fine reproductions, you should not miss this show. 

It just so happens that more than 8 decades ago, New York Artists Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning propped up a few of their paintings in Washington Square Park and called it a show.  A lot has changed since then: Now, more than 120 artists and artisans -- including painters, sculptors, jewelers and glassblowers -- exhibit their wares at the outdoor show.  I will be there, camera in hand, scouting for some great art for myself and a few friends. Some of my finds will be posted here with all the pertinent contact info, so check back!
