Highlights From Armory Week

Armory Week is a beast. After experiencing a non-stop visual bombardment of incredible artworks from around the world for three solid days, my eyes needed a rest. But once the art hangover subsided, I was surprised by the clarity I felt surrounding some of my favorite pieces.  A few were immediate hits, while others were slow burns I found myself mulling over long after the fairs ended. That being said, I wanted to share with you some of the artists who captured my attention, brought something new to the table, and prompted my weary eyes to un-glaze during this year's Armory Week. – Elizabeth Devlin, Boston Contributor

Highlights from the 2013 Armory Show

Another year, another Armory Show. Overall a good year for painting! However, the fair was a little weird this time around with a clear shortage of "Blue Chip" galleries (You'll find them at Frieze later in the year), but maybe that's a good thing. More room for everyone else...Below are some highlights (in my humble opinion) from the fair. Tomorrow I'll be posting pictures from VOLTA. Enjoy! - Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher
