Gibbes: Art on Paper Fair

During the Fine Arts Weekend, the Gibbes Museum (as the host) and Charleston Fine Art Dealers Association (as the vendors) pair up to promote and sell art, and MCG’s role was to document the event and guests. My task evolved into a fascination of how art draws an audience. Observing guests hold, touch, turn a piece this way and that, try to sell their spouse on the idea of going home with a certain piece, and keep circling back to favorites makes for another layer of documentation.
