This is my first time attending SOFA, and I am LOVING it! It’s great getting to see all this amazing work in person, instead of in the pages of a book or magazine…and on top of that, so many of the artists are here, in the booths or giving lectures, so I get to meet them. What an honor. Here’s just a few of the people I saw today–artists, gallery owners and attendees–as well as some of the work:
