I met Seth Apter at the Contemporary Art Fair in NYC

As a surprise to my god-daughter I took her to NYC on Sunday, October 27th to see the Contemporary Art Fair held at the Javits Center and I wanted to finally meet Seth Apter. Click here to see a few of his pieces.  Meeting other artists online is wonderful but to finally meet one of them in person is fantastic.

Let me tell you that everything you hear about Seth is true. He is so nice, down to earth, and an amazing artist. He was one of only a handful of artists who let you go up close and touch his pieces. I have his surface techniques DVD and it was great to see these techniques close up.

Here is a picture of the two of us. I can't believe I posting it. I hate my picture taken.

 
 
I was so amazed at the art work that I didn't take many pictures. I did take a picture of the flying artist and his art. Yes, flying.
 

 
Then we went to lunch in Time Square and took pictures of all the characters.

 
Of course, we had to go into the Disney Store. When you go up the escalator you see all the lanterns from the movie Tangled and we took our picture in a mirror. I actually love that picture.

 
What was really interesting this trip is everyone was taking pictures with their cell phones. Not very many actual cameras. I think I would feel naked without my camera.

 
If you look at her cell you can see she was taking a picture of the naked cowboy.

 
Going back to Saturday we pulled out all my Halloween stuff and created a couple of pieces. This is my god-daughters canvas. She doesn't feel that it's finished yet but I love it. She also made a tag but I didn't take a picture of it.


Here is my tag.  We both made Halloween tags with Prima's doll stamps.
 


 
 
We had tons of fun in NYC.
The art show was amazing.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
