Art New York
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Paris to Buenos Aires, from Hong Kong to Chelsea, and from Jerusalem to Dallas, art galleries around the globe are busily preparing to present their best at Art New York, the new contemporary fair that debuts with an opening gala and preview on Thurs., Feb. 27 from 5:30 P.M. to 9:30 P.M in the Javits Center Galleria. The fair runs from Fri., Feb. 28 through March 3. Galleries showing at Art New York’s inaugural fair will display an array of remarkable new contemporary works, including paintings, works on paper, sculpture, photography and objects. Thousands of art dealers, gallerists, private collectors, curators, corporate buyers and others are expected to browse through the exhibits in search of art for existing and new collections.

According to Joyce Jamison, show director, “Many will be looking for undiscovered artists and this fair is an especially good source for discovering emerging artists and galleries since a number have never before exhibited in New York. In fact, we’ve created a special section called Currents New York where collectors can find new, emerging local and international artists.”

Among the dynamic exhibitors at Art New York is Gracie Mansion Gallery, which hosts an exciting array of paintings by remarkable contemporary artists, including works by Al Hansen, Jacques Flechemuller and David Sandlin, among others.

Leaping Hare, a sculpture by Sophie Dickens, great, great granddaughter of author Charles Dickens, will be among the featured works on display at London’s Will’s Art Warehouse exhibit. Also featured will be cityscapes by digital artist Graham Holland, and Dreaming Girl: London Lilac, a painting by artist Dinah Dufton. From Montréal, Les Modernes gallery highlights the works of artist Louis Boudreault, whose oil and pigments on wood recreate boxes of artists’ colors dating from the Renaissance. Also on display will be the work of French sculptor Dominique Bernard, including his Candelabra in plaster.

The George Billis Gallery in New York’s renown Chelsea arts district spotlights works from established and emerging artists, including works on paper by Alejandro Mazón; romantic paintings of New York City by Stephen Magsig; impressive large scale still life paintings in oil on wood from Tom Gregg; encaustic paintings on wood panels by Kevin Frank, and a series of evolving, abstract botanicals through multiple layers of gesso, acrylic, ink, crayon and pastel from Tom Gregg. Another very exciting gallery, Chinese Contemporary of London, features established artists whose work appears in major museum collections and young, promising artists whose avant garde works are gaining considerable praise. The focal point of this gallery’s exhibit is contemporary art that reflects the turmoil of Tiananmen Square in 1989. Among those featured are works by such artists as Zhang Dali, Wang Guangyi, Yue Minjun, Zhao Bo and Zhu Ming.

From Santiago, Chile, the Galeria De Arte Ceclia Palma will display the works of Ernesto Barreda in a striking “one-man show” of oil paintings, drawings in both charcoal and pastel and bronze sculptures. Featured works from Isabel Anchorena’s gallery of Buenos Aires, Argentina, will include oil mixed media on canvas by Eduardo Hoffmann; tempera on canvas by Miguel D’Arienzo; oil on canvas by Peter Griffin, and striking sculptures made of thistle and cedar. Bronze sculptures by Dirk De Keyser and Carlos Mata will be offered at the Galerie Artys exhibit from Paris.

“With our outstanding collection of U.S. and international galleries, I am confident that we have achieved our goal for Art New York in crating a dynamic showcase for contemporary, original work that is being seen for the first time,” said Jamison. Art New York is associated with Art Miami director Ilana Vardy. Vardy, along with her team, serves as a consultant for Art New York’s launch. She works closely with show director Joyce Jamison on determining the art fair’s design, logistics and participating galleries. Art New York is produced by Advanstar Communications, a leading publisher of business magazines and organizers of trade shows and major expositions.
