Piercing Ken Thoughts: When I posted some similar news about their 2023 event I had an interest in attending but the time got out of hand for me and I never managed to get around to it. Having done something like 35 artist interviews at both the Affordable Art Fair and Artexpo New York at their Spring shows I think that I will make note of reaching out and seeing if I can explore it. There are so many amazing artists out there and I really love seeing what their work is all about. Wrapping this up I wonder if any of you have attended this one and what you think about it. Please chime in down below in the comments so I have more of an idea of what to expect and if I do manage to attend I will do my best to secure a few artist or gallery interviews since you’ve been enjoying that stuff. See you next time.
