SCOPE New York 2014 – Recap!

This year’s event was held at Moynihan Station, located in the historic James A. Farley Postal Office. The place itself was absolutely amazing, industrial and spacious – and not to mention filled with awesome artwork from various artists.


We exhibited 2 featured artists – Barry Rosenthal and Caleb Nussear along with additional participating studio artists. 


We also sold a piece by Yana Dimitrova and Suyeon Na!

A favorite in the crowd was Caleb Nussear’s piece: Penrose’s Shield, 2014, made out of cut mirror, wood, fiberglass.


This is Barry Rosenthal’s artwork: FLTR – Soles, 2003/2012,The Grid, 2002/2014, Brown and Clear Bottles,  2001/2012. All of the work are digital C­Prints. They display objects that Rosenthal has found along the coastal areas of New York Harbor.


 Contact if you are interested in learning more about their works.

The art fair was overall a great show with amazing art work and a large turnout!

Awesome video! Thanks AndrewAndrew!

Take a look at this time lapse video of “A Kiss for Luck” by James Leonard. Performed at one of our storefront galleries last summer, Leonard carved an old wooden boat into a sea of shavings over the course of three weeks. Check it out!
