So much art, so little time! Eight international art fairs — including the world famous Armory Art Show — and countless other small shows, auctions and gallery exhibits explode onto the scene with the latest and greatest from the art world.

The plethora of parties and paintings could just make you want to scream. Fear not, patrons! Our friends at Artlog put together this handy-dandy guide that will have your friends thinking you’ve got an MFA hidden up your sleeve. Check out the happenings section for super discounts and in-the-know offers for VIP sneak previews and afterparties. The Bridge Art Fair Opening Party and the Diva Block Party (both tomorrow night) sound especially tantalizing.

Just a reminder: Some of the greatest (and most affordable) art you’ll find this weekend will be in the smaller galleries speckled throughout the city. One such show is “Body Shop” put on by Mezze. The show features figurative works by Kiran Chandra, Debasish Manna, Grace Yung Ting Teng and Baseem Rayyes, and the price range prove quite comfortable for the first time investor. Check out “Body Shop” at Karin Kohlberg Studio (3 West 30th St., Suite 4) on Saturday and Sunday from 12-6pm.

See you there, daaaaaahlings.
