Evan Mirapaul and Bert Teunissen Blogging at The Aperture Foundation

We've not seen much in terms of NYC art shows worth dishing mentioning the last few weeks..so blogging has been lite. We're planning a summer road trip up to Storm King Arts Center this weekend. If any readers have suggestions for MAO worthy art related pit stops on our trek up to artistic no-mansland Mountainville, NY please let us know.

Bert_teunissen_social_landscapes_be While your waiting for further art collecting enlightenment from MAO.. we've found this new art collector blog from Evan Mirapaul. Evan, who like MAO, is a very active art photo obsessed collector, has been traveling around Europe's numerous big art events the last few weeks, and has some great/candid insights.

Also.. We're not sure how we missed it.. but Dutch Photographer Bert Teunissen has also been blogging for a while. You may know Bert (website) from his brilliant new book, Social Landscapes published by Aperture. (Photo by Bert Teunissen, Belin Beliet #3, 1997, France)

So while most of the art world is on summer vacation both blogs.. are well worth checking out!

FYI.. Aperture has a 30% sale going on many of their new titles, including the huge MAO Must have.. Gilbert & George : The Complete Pictures, 1971 - 2005

Additional Favorite Art Dealer Websites..Link Updates.. How many is TOO Many?

Chelsea_arts_tower Updated Gallery Website lists.. Yes.. There are so many new galleries to see...where do we even begin ??

FYI..there are now 195 Galleries..just listed on the Chelsea Art Galleries website. WOW!!

I over heard someone say a few nights ago there are over 1,000 art galleries in NYC. Yikes!! (photo of the new monster 20 story commercial Chelsea Arts Tower on 25th street)

Well, it's been a long time since we've added any..so in a totally gratuitously self serving attempt to gain favor and of course better discounts (aka..more than 10%), we're adding a few galleries we feel are worth checking out.

Here are a few of our new favorite galleries..

We'd strongly suggest everyone shop go to these galleries, oh... and be sure to tell them MAO sent you !

  • Cohen Amador Gallery - Great new, up and coming photography gallery on 57th street
  • PPOW Gallery - Important established gallery. And, It's actually shocking how nice & friendly the people here are, not what you've come to expect in Chelsea!
  • Merge Gallery - A MAO Chelsea find.. it's tiny &  totally wet behind the ears.. but the Rumors are, you're going to hear a lot more about them in Art in America very soon! Look OUT!
  • Bonni Benrubi Gallery - How we didn't have this Amazing photo gallery on our original list.. I'll never know.
  • Gallery 10G - New very young gallery featuring emerging artists.. one to watch!
  • Rhona Hoffman Gallery - Proving that you don't have to be in NYC to be a Great Gallery!
  • Daneyal Mahmood Gallery - New young Chelsea gallery, a smart crew here..totally cutting edge!
  • Peer Gallery - An Artist run Contemporary Photography Gallery. Plus, any gallery that has John Bennette as a guest curator must be FABULOUS!

So these 8 will be added to the already 21 great galleries on our current list.
