  1. Hi there–

    I am a writer for Flash Art, Sculpture, and dART International.

    Wondering if you have some images of OPEN 14 I could see for possible coverage.

    I am based in New York.
    I prefer colorful, novel, abstracted, new-material sculpture to anything traditional, figurative, or predominantly conceptual.

    Thank you so much!
    Gae Savannah
