I was just thinking about how busy I was last weekend walking up and down the aisles of the annual photography show, AIPAD which was held at the Park Avenue Armory. It is a wonderful opportunity to see a lot of work in one place, and of course run into a lot of people I work with throughout the year who are in the industry. It is always good to see dealers from out of state such as Catherine Courtier from the John Cleary Gallery in Houston, or Burt and Missy Finger from Photographs Do Not Bend in Dallas, or Wendy Halsted from the Halsted Gallery in Franklin, MI. It was also great to run into photographers such as Lindsay McCrum, Jill Freedman and George Tice.
A highlight of the show for me was The Photo League panel that was held on Sunday, with many Photo League members participating including; Ida Wyman, Vivian Cherry, Rebecca Lepkopf, Erika Stone, Sonia Handelman Meyer, Marvin Newman, George Zimbel and Artie Leipzig. It is very exciting that there will finally be a major exhibit of The Photo League that will open at The Jewish Museum in NYC, in November 2011 and then will travel to the Columbus Museum of Art in Ohio and hopefully, other locations.
