Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and greek yogurt. Pique your creative leanings an easier way with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two one-day adult admissions to Artexpo New York 2011 (up to a $30 value), which will take place March 25–27 at Pier 94 in Manhattan. Children age 12 and younger are admitted for free.
Pulling together art makers, dealers, and aficionados for more than a quarter of a century, Artexpo New York combines the aesthetic adventure of a gallery opening with the bustling atmosphere of a trade show. A showcase for some of the twentieth century's most well-known artists—past exhibitors include Andy Warhol, Peter Max, and IBM's Painterbot Mark VI—Artexpo will continue its tradition of top-shelf exhibition with the 2011 edition. Manhattan's Pier 94 will come to life with the brushstrokes of a globe-girdling group of more than 400 visiting artists from more than 20 countries. Visitors can take to the trade floor for an eye-ameliorating array of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and more, or rub elbows with style scouts in search of unheralded talent at the aspiration-laden Solo Pavilion.
Curious raconteurs can preview the show's offerings on Artexpo's Flickr page, taking in pieces such as Catherine Chiara's pointillist cityscapes, David Hoke's wood-cut reductions, or mysterious representations of a frog's subconscious.
Education-minded attendees can fertilize their follicle foundations by taking advantage of Artexpo's range of classes and seminars. Auger upcoming fads and fashions with Michael Pacitti's 2011 Design Trends, search for social-media outlets hand in hand with Bravo's Work of Art star Peregrine Honig during Unlimited Edition, Publishing New Media, or find out if the Mayans predicted the end of paint during "The Future of the Art World" panel discussion.
