The late summer edition of the Affordable Art Fair is back at the Metropolitan Pavilion through Sunday, September 13th! We hit the Preview Night on Wednesday and were thrilled with the variety of artworks for sale and the friendliness of the gallery representatives on hand to help move each piece along to an art-loving home.
We took a ton of photos, as usual, but managed to edit this post down to 10 (or 11, actually) of our favorite Pink Things we saw at the show. Enjoy!
That was fun right? And there is so much more to see, so make sure to go this weekend!
The Metropolitan Pavilion is located at 125 West 18th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues) and the Affordable Art Fair hours are as follows:

PK SHOP is pleased to introduce an exclusive new edition by Nir Hod. Inspired by the artist’s Genius series of paintings of precocious and portentous children, the 11 1/2 x 7 1/2 inch chrome-plated sculpture is produced in editions of seven in four bold colors: gold, pink, and two additional colors that will be announced at a later date.
A meditation on beauty and loneliness, Hod’s poised and alluring young geniuses dwell in a world of paradox, where their cherubic cheeks contrast with their scornful expressions and lit cigarettes. Philosopher Roy Brand describes them as “…little demons without disguises. But they are also yearning, beautiful, and charming, and their narcissism is more a sign of internal happiness than of vanity.”
Entitled Nicolai, the series accentuates the vulnerability of these child prodigies by pairing the knowing expressions and eerie self-possession of the painted geniuses with the sculpture’s three-dimensional diminutive body. Referencing the seductiveness of luxury materials, Hod implements chrome for the first time with this series. The shiny high-polish of the chrome is transformative; the cutting edge medium transforms the traditionally-rendered sculpture into an object of the modern world. The mirrored surface of the work appeals to the viewer’s inner narcissist, while the rich colors reflect the vivid imagery of contemporary life.
My friend Neil, who lives in Swinging London, took these photos of a car he saw parked in his neighborhood, and then posted them on my FaceBook page. Because Neil knows me well.
What we have here is a lovely Pink Nissan Figaro, a car formerly sold only in Japan that has become popular with owners in the UK, Ireland and South East Asia. It is truly a Sweet Ride! Thanks, Neil for providing us with a fabulous Pink Thing of The Day!
Wouldn’t you like to take a ride in this thing? I sure would!
This Mickey Mouse Toy was covered in Pink yarn by crochet artist Olek for the Juxtapose Magazine 20th Anniversary group show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City.
Pink Mickey is actually just a small part of a much larger work — a sprawling cat habitat fully covered in crocheted, multi colored yarn. Check it out below!
Looking at this lovely display featuring bright, springlike colors makes me want to buy fancy underwear. Photographed at Sugar Cookies Lingerie Shop, Located at 203 West 19th St, New York, NY.
