Once again I am both inspired and humbled by the amazing collection of art at the Scope Art Fair. It’s International in scope and the works primarily range from the contemporary and avant garde to Pop and Street Art. Since it’s a fairly large show what I did this year was write the the name of the Artist as I took pictures and then wrote down what came to my mind at the moment. This should give you not only a good feel for the scope of the show…but a desire to go see it fir yourself if you have not done so already.
