Highlights From Fountain Art Fair - A Big View From A Huge Event!

Last week New Yorkers converged on the Fountain Art Fair held at the Park Ave Armory, the fair that seems to get better with each year.  From its roots deep within the independent Williamsburg, Brooklyn art scene, Fountain has grown to represent over 60 international avant garde galleries and projects. Fountain Art Fair has received critical acclaim for its uniquely alternative art fair model and genuine dedication to the artists and galleries who share in its vision and ideology.   Highlights from the show in these NYC greats and photos featuring: Willard Morgan, Ruco Nishino, Dave Tree, H veng Smith, Joseph Meloy, Ricky Powell, Willard Morgan, Optimo Primo, Ruko Yokune, Frankie Velez, Johnny Leo, Lynsey LB Laskowski and many more galleries and print representatives.
