One of the best places in NYC to see and buy new art, the Affordable Art Fair, kicked off this past Wednesday with a private preview and continues through Sunday, April 3rd at the Metropolitan Pavilion.

I always have a good time at the fair and I love seeing so much diverse contemporary art — from galleries all across the globe — under one roof. The gallerists are super friendly and I always run into friends. It’s a good time! Since it’s virtually impossible to distill this event due to its massive scope and overall diversity of the art, I decided to do what I did last year, which is to recap by featuring my favorite pink works of art also (including purple and red, just because) to give you an idea of what you’ll see at the Affordable Art Fair, and what the prices are like.

Enjoy!

Remembrance Wall Light by Wonsil Kim
Remembrance Wall Light (1 of 2) by Wonsil Kim

Korean-born artist/sculptor Wonsil Kim created a pair light fixtures that he calls the Remembrance Wall Light. I snapped a photo of the one with a pale pink finish, but there is also one in a complementary shade of blue. The glass of each lamp depicts a scene of people playing volleyball on the beach, as bright yellow tennis balls wiz by at high speed! Very beautiful, and nostalgic, even! The top of each light features a pair of white feathers poking upward that somewhat emulates a pair of wings.  Here’s another view of this lovely work, which I saw in the booth manned by Park Fine Art in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Remembrance Wall Light

Price: $600 Each (sold as a pair with one Pink and one Blue Lamp)
