Good news to report! Having recently returned from SOFA* Chicago, Mark Levin writes:
SOFA Chicago [November 7-9] was very good, much better than the galleries expected. Setup was a little strange because it was so quiet and a little tense for no one knew what to expect. Once the doors opened on preview night it went gang busters.
The info on their home page is dead on, not just pr. Most encouraging was talking with buyers and collectors and hearing about the new homes that they’re building. The blue chips names were selling as well as the very pale blue chips.
I encourage you to read, watch and listen to the reports from SOFA. Smile and feel better that people are buying art.
