I hit the Scope Arts Fair on Sunday and couldn’t believe how much it has grown dramatically from first time I went a few years back.  What is really so amazing is the depth and breath of talent …works vary from Wow how creative, Wow what’s going on in this artists minds eyes…to OMG is this Artist has some really dark stuff going on…Now that I’m painting…the combo of art, mediums and techniques was both inspiration, generating ideas in my mind’s eye…while simultaneously blowing my mind…

The crowd varied from artsy to average, beautiful to bizarre(if you saw someone that looked like he belonged more in a Sports Bar then an Art Fair…likely it was this guy:)to wild and what the…are you wearing? Bits of conversation always crack me up… Like…the 2 guys discussing “its not his boyfriend …they are do not going out…they’re just F buddies!  Why does he intro him as boyfriend!?!” …or the great staff from Sons of Essex having to constantly explain that since its in a Federal  Building(Post Office) you can buy food with cash …but alcohol requires you purchase Drink tickets… Yeah Big Gov(Not:) and me running into Eve-Marie an Art Dealer I acquired work from introducing me to  the Artist Boun-Jean Luc Virard and having him explain to me his painting process which was pretty Intense using linen canvas, ground precious stones such as Lapis Lazuli from Afghanistan and cold & heat to produce his works…

Regardless of the maps they give you and signs I always walk around lost and wander…this way I can see the art from different angles and light to really appreciate the work…plus, I’m lost and easily distracted by either a really cool work or beautiful woman walking by…Special kudos to Sons of Essex for providing great food(Awesome BLT’s) and beverages for the event and a shout out to URNY who hit a wall in the Street Art section…Below are a number of Artists whose works I liked…but in all fairness it’s not a complete list…see attached pics…
