Read what others are saying about Bridge! Now come check it out yourself!

ARTINFO quotes Owner/Director Marisa Sage, director of Brooklyn’s Like the Spice Gallery, said she missed the communal feeling of Fountain, but she also appreciated being part of a larger fair. The gallery reported brisk sales, including two of New York artist Dean Goelz’s humanoid sculptures, listed at $1,400 to $1,800.

Bridge had a distinctly cosmopolitan feel. Organizers said they were using the fair’s New York debut to introduce its new “Focus” series, which highlights art from specific regions. Bridge New York is showcasing Asia, but the concentration is subtle, with only 15 of the 57 participating galleries hailing from Taipei, Shanghai, Tokyo, and across the Pacific Rim. There were also galleries from elsewhere around the globe, including Canada, Spain, and Switzerland.

“I’m really impressed with Bridge in general,” Sage said. “I’m meeting gallerists from all over the world.”
