Last night I went to ArtBo. I can only compare it to when I first went in 2005 as I did not make it last year.
Well, as far as I could see although it was very busy it had only about 60% of visitors the first fair had on its maiden night. This may be normal – but I do not think that it is a good sign. Whether it had anything to do with “La Otra” being on as a competing event I am not sure.
In any case, I managed to do a quick round of the galleries which I hope to bring some news on later in the week.
One of the galleries is ENTREARTE which is run by Christopher Paschall and is based in Bogota. One of the artists he is presently exhibiting in his pop art presentation is Maripaz Jaramillo. The philosophy of the gallery is to educate and assist people who are interested in art make the appropriately wise choices.
Here is a photo of them both at the event with a few artworks by Maripaz in the background.
