We’re in Soho on Tuesdays, the Lower East Side on Wednesdays, Chelsea on Thursdays. We go to openings, art fairs, auctions, performances, lectures, galas, member events, after-parties. (Oh the afterparties!) WE are the New York art world, though we do travel, so we’re really everywhere.
Every Friday, we post things in “Overheard in the Art World.” #OHAW Honestly, art world, don’t take yourself so seriously.

— on the streets of the Chelsea gallery district
“Her jumper looks like a garbage bag.”
— Art in General 30th Anniversary Gala
“I have studios all over the world, but in Greece, I am an amateur!”
