Observer Expands Art Coverage With New Hires

The New York Observer is expanding its coverage of the arts scene with the aid of two new hires. Joining the Observer team is writer Alexandra Peers, who will act as editor-at-large, and art publisher David Gursky.

Peers have previously written for the Wall Street Journal, focusing on international arts coverage, in addition to writing for New York magazine, The New York Times and myriad arts publications. She will work with both the print publication and Observer.com to expand coverage of New York galleries, museums, auction, houses, art and antiques dealers, and collectors

Before joining the Observer‘s team, Gursky served as vice president and group publisher for Art + Auction, Modern Painters, Gallery Guide, Museums, Culture +Travel and Artinfo.com while at Louise Blouin Media.

Editor Kyle Pope expressed the publication’s excitement about their added coverage and new staffers: “With the addition of Alexandra, and the increased coverage planned, we will be more authoritative than ever.”
