This week we’re thrilled to bring to you the latest edition of Artists Wanted’s In Focus video series, dedicated to the incredible evening we hosted with SCOPE Art Show earlier this month during NYC’s Armory Arts Week. Hundreds came out to join us for a celebration of art, culture and the people who make it (you). Thank you all for your support! Also, be sure to check out: works from Artists Wanted participant Karine Laval, next week’s hottest (and most sensory) event in Miami, and our annual Power of Self competition – an amazing opportunity to have One Year of Your Life, Paid For.

MISE EN ABYME
Artists Wanted : Year in Review 2010 Runner-up Karine Laval is currently on exhibit at Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York City. The exhibition, entitled MISE EN ABYME, revisits Laval’s best known subject, the swimming pool. Oscillating “between abstraction and representation,” her dream-like, saturated compositions push liminal boundaries, depicting a “world on the edge of the real and surreal”. The show is on display until March 19th. Congrats Karine! Click here for more info >>
