Good Morning! After a nice relaxing week and a half, Art Scene Newsletter has returned with two exciting news:

A new art fair is making it’s début in New York City. Downtown Fair, a new modern and contemporary art fair produced by Art Miami, is marking its inaugural debut next month on May 8-11, 2014 during Frieze Week.

I was browsing around online, when I came across this documentary, Making It, from another art blogging site, Illustration Age.
As it states on their website makingitpictures.com:
“MAKING IT” is a Art Documentary about the daily struggles of making a living, staying creative, and making it all up as we go along. The Documentary features three Illustrators, Andrew Bawidamann, Eric Fortune, and Brian Ewing.
This documentary gives you a peek at what each of these artists at how they achieved their goals, what pushes them, and where they see themselves.
Don’t know when the documentary comes out, but I do know I want to see it. We’ll just keep checking their website for more information.
Come back this weekend for At the Museum and I have something to share with you guys too. Enjoy your Wednesday and be blessed always!
