Show Highlights
“The attendance was off the charts and the sales were great,” raved Robert Mann, Robert Mann Gallery, New York. “I think it’s the best show I ever had,” noted Keith de Lellis, Keith de Lellis Gallery, New York, echoing a number of other dealers. “The quality of the fair is up because people are taking it more seriously,” explained Michael Hoppen, Michael Hoppen Gallery, London.

Bryce Wolkowitz, Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, New York, noted that AIPAD was “over the top. We did even better than we did at the pier show the week before last. We met new European and international collectors, and sold 12 works including a new media work by Jim Campbell for $75,000, and “lighting books” by Airan Kang for $5,000.” HackelBury Fine Art Limited, London, sold multiple works by Doug and Mike Starn in the $20,000 to $80,000 range.

Robert Klein, Robert Klein Gallery, Boston, said, “It was the best ever. There was a good balanced cross section of curators, old collectors and new buyers.” He sold silver prints by Irving Penn for $95,000 and Francesca Woodman for $50,000. “We did better than ever,” noted Roland Baron, Gallery 19/21, Guilford, CT. “Collectors were much more open to buying. Either the crisis is over are people are saying the heck with the crisis. We sold works by Mario Giacomello, of which we’re known to have a large stock.” Monroe Gallery of Photography, Santa Fe, sold a number of silver prints by Bill Eppridge and others top photographers depicting civil rights issues. The gallery also found success with photographs by Stephen Wilkes for $16,500 to $18,500.

We sold work by Frederick Sommer, Man Ray, Henry Moore, and Diane Arbus.” Weinstein Gallery, Minneapolis, reported that it was an excellent show and that their one-person exhibition of work by Alec Soth did very well. Richard Moore, Richard Moore Photographs, Oakland, CA, said it was a great show and sold more than 14 works ranging from $1,800 to $7,500, including a Walker Evans to an institution.

Galerie Priska Pasquer, Cologne, Germany, reported interest from museums and sold more than 10 works by Japanese artists including two prints by Lieko Shiga, of which 100 percent of the profits will be donated to a Japanese charity to aid victims of the earthquake and tsunami.

Deborah Bell, Deborah Bell Photographs, New York, felt AIPAD presented the best- looking show in memory and sold work by Andy Warhol, Marcel Broodthaers, and G. P. Fieret, ranging from $6,000 to $15,000. “There were serious collectors who have been active since the 1970s, as well as museum curators, consultants and new clients in their 30s and 40s.”

“We’re pleased with the buying atmosphere in New York,” noted Missy Finger from PDNB Gallery, Dallas. “It seems the city is out of the recession.” The gallery sold work by Esteban Pastorino Diaz, Peter Brown and John Albok. Verve Gallery of Photography, Santa Fe, noted that collectors were “knowledgeable and well rounded,” and sold more than 35 photographs. Winter Works on Paper, Brooklyn, sold nearly 70 works ranging from $100 to $2,500, including work to five museums.
