ArtExpo is named the “world’s largest fine art show”, and has set up shop this weekend in New York City at Pier 94, located on 11th Ave at 54th Street in Manhattan. The show, which opened to VIPs Friday evening, features artwork from all over the world from both emerging (the [SOLO] show) and more established artists. Along with this, there is the DECO Expo Showcase, a trade only art and framing show.

An added bonus for ArtExpo is the featured works of my favorite interior designer and star of HGTV’s Color Splash, David Bromstad. He has partnered with Penny Lane to create a collection of affordable artwork for the home.

General admission tickets are $20, and valid for one-day admission. Public show hours are below.

  • Saturday, April 5, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Sunday, April 6, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.




If you are not familiar with the name Bob Gruen, you are definitely familiar with his work. Born in 1945 in NYC, Gruen has documented the international rock scene for over forty years, notably being the personal photographer of John Lennon during his stay in New York City. Pop International Gallery in SoHo currently hosts the photographic retrospective of Gruen’s works, which opened this past Thursday, entitled “Rock Seen”, which coincides with his book of the same name.

This exhibition is not to be missed by music fans and photo enthusiasts alike, and will be on view for a few weeks.  Pop SoHo is located at 473 Broadway in Manhattan. Admission to the gallery is gratis. Gallery hours are below.
