Hey! Been back at work getting new blog posts ready for the week and the weeks ahead. As promised, I’m keeping an eye on Portal: Governors Island art fair this year, which will take place during the weekends of September. I can’t recall if I posted this part, but I will post it again as a reminder for those attending the fair.
