Comment by AB: At the end of every summer, like migrating birds, artsters return from their vacations, fully refreshed and ready for the sprint to the Holiday Season and coming New Year. There's great gobs of art action all over town throughout the month of September including openings of over 100 new shows... and I was there for pretty much all of them. Practically every gallery trots out top talent and this time around was no exception. Here are 27 artist portraits carefully culled from the thousands photos I took.
