Helen Toomer, the director of the PULSE New York and Miami Contemporary Art Fairs, talks about: what led her to come to the States, New York in specific, from England, and how she's the black sheep of the family since she's the only one who left her home country; her two years running Toomer Labzda on the Lower East Side, which she ran with her now ex-husband, Chris Labzda, a fellow Brit, and an artist, who she married after nine months together, and what she learned from that time as a gallerist; how she got the job with PULSE, what goes into running an art fair- including selecting exhibitors and keeping them happy; and how to best manage your time as an art fair-goer or exhibitor.

New York-based painter Mark Thomas Gibson (http://www.fredericksfreisergallery.com/artists/mark-thomas-gibson) talks about: Race in art relations; being a black artist asked by both whites and blacks: 'where is your ethnicity in your work?'; meeting Houston-based artist Trenton Doyle Hancock; why he took 10 years off before applying to grad school (9/11); what led him to grad school (Yale) despite his reservations; and what it's like being an artist in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

New York video & animation artist Adam Shecter talks about: His job history after moving to New York (from school in Montreal at McGill University), including being a receptionist and a creator of visual internals among other gigs; his animation videos, including his relatively epic New Year, and how he anticipates viewers will take it in in a gallery (vs. film) context; how he came to show with the Lower East Side gallery 11R (formerly Eleven Rivington); and why he values having a full-time job (as an arts technology teacher at an all-boys' school) over being a full-time artist, as it gives him the time and freedom to make what he wants to make at the pace he wants to make it.
