The inclusion of sculpture in Works on Paper, the 21st annual gathering of dealers in photography, drawings, prints, watercolors, rare books and posters at the Park Avenue Armory, signals a radical and not unwelcome change in focus of the only New York art fair defined by the material on which the work is made.


The inclusion of sculpture adds a delightful unpredictability to the booths. Goya Contemporary has devoted a wall to the work of Joyce J. Scott, an artist from Baltimore who makes small, mysterious assemblages using seeds, beads, glass and thread. They exhibit a playful virtuosity, along with attentiveness to wider social issues.

The fair is, as usual, amply supplied with Pop art prints and posters, including Tom Wesselmann’s sketchlike screen print “Nude With Mirror” (1990) at John Szoke Editions. It is also worth wandering into Gary Bruder Fine Art to see “Howdy Doody,” Andy Warhol’s 1981 screen print of that memorable marionette. BENJAMIN GENOCCHIO

“Works on Paper” is open from noon to 8 p.m. on Friday, noon to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday; (212) 777-5218,
