No Art Fair Lull as One Gallery Sells $1 Million in Three Hours

Sean Kelly Gallery sold more than $1 million of sculptures by British artist Antony Gormley in less than three hours on March 3, as a week of art fairs in New York opened with a flurry of purchases by wealthy collectors.

The gallery pulled in another $1 million for works by blue-chip and emerging artists the next day at the Armory Show, the city’s largest contemporary art fair that anchors about a dozen concurrent shows and countless exhibition openings.
