I have been really enjoying the fact that the usual 50 or so robo-calls a day have ceased.  But it turns out that we have been without phone service at the gallery for the last week!  Apparently a wet cable many blocks west of us, we are told.  
Thank you Verizon!

A Gallery of Peruvian Street Art

I am always intrigued by the street art I find when I travel, whether signage graphics, informal grafitti or intentional and officially sanctioned murals.  On my trip to Peru in April I had been tipped off by my friend Scott Rothstein, so I was particularly interested to see what I would find.

I  received this news of one of the last of the "Old Masters" of Haitian art, Seymour Bottex (courtesy of Erve Bottex).  Rest in peace.

Notes on a trip to Peru - A visit to the studio of Claudio Jimenez Quispé

I've just returned from a visit to Peru.  Eleven days is not much time for a country the size of Peru, but it allowed me a few days in Lima - visiting markets, museums and some artists' studios, and an excursion to Cusco and the Sacred Valley, including Machu Picchu.

Peru!

I will be traveling to Peru over the next two weeks.  The gallery will be open for its usual hours, and we will be monitoring emails and online orders.  But we will not be shipping out again before May 2nd.  My apologies for any inconvenience.
