I am currently sitting at a small desk in my home-away-from-home hotel room in Maastricht, where I will reside for the next three weeks. As you may or may not know, I work at an art gallery in New York, and each year we participate in an art fair, The European Fine Art Fair, in the Netherlands. Alas, I said goodbye to friends and family this week and am now settling in for a month of working in Europe.
Not to fret, I am still planning on getting some posts up. (Of course, I realize that I've been rather slow lately anyway - preparing to move the gallery to a different continent was a little hectic, to say the least.) I've got a couple days off here and there for travel, and of course, the fair itself is fantastic so there should be some great art to write about. The neat thing about this fair versus some of the others that we do is that it includes more than just an enormous spectrum of fine art - there are also the world's leading dealers in antiques, jewelry, modern design, armor, etc. It's really fantastic and high quality - plenty of things to feast one's eyes on for the three weeks I'm here.
I'll also be taking a week's vacation after the fair, traveling Belgium and the Champagne region of France with Wright. I am, needless to say, looking forward to that part of this trip, but there is a lot of work to be done before then!
Doeg, for now!
