New York Observer Expands Arts Coverage Hiring Veteran Arts Journalists
Ms. Peers' background includes more than a decade of international art news coverage for the Wall Street Journal.
NEW YORK, NY.- The New York Observer announced that it is significantly expanding its art coverage, and appointed Alexandra Peers as an Editor-at-Large to spearhead the effort. Ms. Peers will be responsible for overseeing a multi-page expansion of the publication’s existing art coverage, with particular attention paid to news coverage and features on New York museums, art and antiques galleries, auction houses and collectors, She will also work with the publication’s Website, www.Observer.com, to help give arts news a substantially greater presence online. The operation will feature dedicated staffers as well as a who’s-who of art reporting globally.

“The Observer has always been an important voice for the art community in New York,” said Observer Editor Kyle Pope. “With the addition of Alexandra, and the increased coverage planned, we will be more authoritative than ever.”

The Observer will maintain its already dominant coverage of culture, including movies, television and the performing arts.

Ms. Peers' background includes more than a decade of international art news coverage for the Wall Street Journal. She has also written for New York magazine, The New York Times and several arts publications. She graduated from Wesleyan University and received a Masters Degree from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where she has taught Feature Writing.

Spearheading the project on the business side is David Gursky, who served as Vice President/Group Publisher for Art + Auction, Modern Painters, Gallery Guide magazines, Museums magazine, Culture +Travel and Artinfo.com for more than six years at Louise Blouin Media, the art-industry’s leading trade publisher. Prior to that, Mr. Gursky was a Vice President and Publisher at Douglas Publications, VNU Business Media and Penton Media. He holds Masters Degrees from both Rutgers University and Brooklyn College. He has won numerous awards for his publishing and sales expertise.

The Observer’s expanded arts coverage will debut March 31.
