Making their first appearance at the Show & Sale Fall Preview are Art Link International, DEN, McGeorge Art Prints, and New Order Modern.
On Saturday the Show & Sale will feature a book signing by Doug Meyer from at 1-3pm on his new book “HEROES: A Tribute”, which pays homage to brilliant creative figures like Keith Haring, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Rudolph Nureyev who were the first victims of AIDS and AIDS-related diseases. Printed in multiple papers with pops of neon color and painted edges echoing the artist’s work, HEROES is a gorgeous, hard-cover feast for the eyes and soul.
