Animal magnetism and the first fair

Has our studio gone to the dogs? Is the Chelsea art scene a game of cat-and-mouse? No and no, but animals are welcome at 551, and 2 artists feature them in these delectable works.

Get close to them Saturday, March 6th, from 11-6 at 551 West 21st Street (across 11th from Chelsea Piers and the Dog Park!)

The first art fair previews today, the ADAA annual known as The Art Show, and the Park Avenue Armory (yes Armory, but THE Armory show is on the piers...) Here's a peek at Galerie Lelong's installation piece - see it up close through Sunday  - gala tonite - the proceeds benefit Henry Street Settlement.
