New York Art, Antique & Jewelry Show Puts Best Face Forward At Pier 94

PUBLISHED: NOVEMBER 22, 2016

Review and Photos by Andrea Valluzzo

NEW YORK CITY — The third annual New York Art, Antique & Jewelry Show, casually known as the New York Fall Show, so thoroughly transformed Pier 94’s layout during its November 9–13 run that you could almost swear you were standing inside the Park Avenue Armory, where the show had previously been mounted. The show manager, the Palm Beach Show Group, is known for its sophisticated show presentations, and this show was elegant, spacious and filled with carefully curated booths featuring striking and one-of-a-kind offerings.

Colorful wallpapered booths and carpeted aisles were among the touches of finesse in the show and dealers strove to outdo themselves in putting exceptional objects on display.

Palm Beach Show Group CEO Scott Diament said they strove to make the show look as good as they could despite challenges they faced. “I believe we achieved the look we wanted. As far as Palm Beach Show Group and the things we do…, I believe we hit our mark,” he said. Coming off the heels of a historic and contentious presidential election, showgoers may have been a bit timid to bite the bullet on purchases. “Overall it was a challenging week,” he added, noting that while attendance may have not been at the numbers they wanted, “People came, they came from all over the region.”

Villa del Arte, Barcelona, Spain, not only took two booths on the show floor, but set up several eye-catching, large-scale installations around the show, including Julio Nieto’s stainless steel figural works, “Coreografia” and “Lo llevo bien.” The gallery was one of a handful of exhibitors in the newly created Contemporary Spotlight, a special section of the show that debuted this year to feature international contemporary art and design galleries. Some of the other dealers here included Gallery Koo, Seoul, Korea, which offered an ink and color work on mulberry paper, “Its Inside is Bigger Than Its Outside Waterfall…,” Art Link International, Lake Worth, Fla., which showed Mr Brainwash’s 84-by-72-inch portrait, “Picasso,” and the Evan Lurie Gallery, Los Angeles, displaying a large work by Michael Gorman depicting the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower.

The artist Craig Alan’s large portrait of Audrey Hepburn, composed of hundreds of tiny painted people, was eye-catching at Guarisco Gallery, Washington, D.C., while coincidentally, across the show floor, The McLoughlin Gallery, San Francisco, also had a Hepburn portrait on view, this one by Jerome Lucani, a photographic survey made up layers of smaller related and biographical images.

A few gallerists chose to mount focused exhibitions. Cavalier Galleries, New York City, filled its booth with the works of American sculptor Jim Rennert, renowned

for his contemporary realism, that take their inspiration from Rennert’s ten years in the business world but are applicable to the everyman. In his bio on the gallery’s website, the artist describes his work: “Mixing the traditional medium of bronze and contemporary forms of flat laser-cut steel, I have illustrated themes and concepts of everyday work life. Initially I had hoped to have depicted popular culture’s ideas on achievement and success in an ironic and humorous fashion. However, over the past years, the work has taken on a more serious tone as I illustrate more about the thoughts and ideas we all deal with in contemporary society.”

Clark Priftis Art, New York City, created a glittering booth featuring art glass by Abby Modell from the artist’s new “Galaxy” collection, which incorporates hand blown glass, Swarovski crystals, mirror chips and rock gems to create otherworldly works of art inspired by the solar system.

It was not all contemporary here. Traditional antiques were plentiful on the show floor. M.S. Rau, which always seems to scout out striking objects for its show displays, proved that bigger is not always better. It offered up a fine Wedgwood Portland vase, priced in the six figures, circa 1795. One of the rare numbered first editions made by Josiah Wedgwood, the 8-inch-tall vase was exhibited at the Royal Ontario Museum of Archaeology, Toronto, Canada, from 1951 to 1953.

Ophir Gallery, Englewood, N.J., can always be counted on for having a choice selection of Tiffany lamps and more in its booth, as evinced by a spectacular circa 1910 Tiffany Studios Poppy table lamp and a fetching Standing Bear sculpture by Nikolaï Ivanovich Liberich made in 1889, measuring 22¾ inches tall.

Jeff R. Bridgman American Antiques, Dillsburg, Penn., is well known for his collection of flags, and his display this time included a Lincoln and Hamlin campaign flag and a 13-star American example. A framed artwork for Buy War Bonds (shown here) was also striking and complemented Bridgman’s offerings.

Macklowe Gallery, New York City, also had a striking booth, featuring Tiffany lamps, such as a choice Peony example, stunning jewelry and more.

Callaghan Fine Paintings, Shrewsbury, U.K.

A fine contingent of international dealers participated in the show. Willow Gallery, London, introduced American audiences to wonderful French works such as Maximilien Luce’s “La Bievre pres de Paris,” 1890, and Pierre Eugene Montezin’s “Les Parasols sur la Promenade”; Sebastian Deya Gallery, Buenos Aires, Argentina, featured Adrien Henri Tanoux’s “The Garden Lunch” and works by Theodor van Thuden (after Rubens) and Jan Molenaer. Excelsior Art and Xavier Eury, Nancy, France, offered sublime examples of Daum Nancy wares, including a short vase with a landscape scene with a pale sky set off with hues of yellow and purple, decorated with trees, and a mocha-colored, acid etched and enameled tall cylindrical vase having a bulbous base, decorated with trees and gilding, circa 1900.

Rounding out the offerings here were Sylvia Powell Decorative Arts, London, which had a whimsical art glass sculpture by Fernand Leger and Egidion Costantini, “Fiore Sole,” made in Venice in 1962; and Solomon Treasure, New York City, which had as its frontispiece the largest French bronze sculpture Ferdinand Barbedienne produced. Titled “Le Soldat de Marathon,” it was made after a model by Jean-Pierre Cortot (1787–1843).

The show has reserved the same date pattern for next year. For information, 561-822-5440 or www.nyfallshow.com.

It’s day 2 at the New York Art, Antiques, and Jewelry Show (NYAAJ) at Pier 94, and CONTEMPORARY SPOTLIGHT section exhibitors continue to report healthy business despite the Veterans Day parade and one protest after another following the election that turned the city’s traffic into a gridlock, proving the solidity of the New York market.

Art Link International (Lake Worth, FL) who presented a mix of Modern masters and contemporary urban art placed an important Maurice Utrillo with a new client for an undisclosed sum in the six-figure range; a recent Michael Wommack piece sold by Colm Rowan Fine Art (Philadelphia, PA); three whimsical painted bronze sculptures by Daniele Matalon who gave an Artist Talk to New York collectors on the first day of the fair, sold by Bruce Lurie Gallery (Los Angeles, CA) for $58,000; several large-scale sculptures by a renown glass artist Abby Model, represented by Clark Priftis Art (New York, NY).

The fair anticipates to welcome new visitors and as well as clients returning to finalize acquisitions tomorrow — its last day — November 13th, between 11am and 6pm.

New York Art, Antique & Jewelry Show (NYAAJ) welcomes contemporary art to its inaugural CONTEMPORARY SPOTLIGHT, a special section within the fair, opening at the fair’s new venue, Pier 94 (711 12th Ave, New York City), on Wednesday, November 9th.

The CONTEMPORARY SPOTLIGHT section is set within the eclectic cross-collecting fair, surrounded by historical materials ranging from Impressionist paintings, 18th century antiques, Picasso Ceramics and Art Nouveau jewelry. “It’s a mini contemporary fair inside a traditional fair,” explains the fair’s director Barbara Goodwin. “The section offers contemporary galleries a unique opportunity to contextualize the creations of their artists in the continuum of art history.”

Art Link International (Lake Worth, FL) presents works by French-born, Los Angeles-based artist Thierry Guetta, better known as the urban art phenomenon, “Mr. Brainwash,” alongside select modern and postwar Pop masterworks by Marc Chagall, Paul Klee, and Roy Lichtenstein. Working primarily with layers of screenprint and stenciled images, Mr. Brainwash fuses historic pop imagery and contemporary cultural iconography to create his version of a sly pop–graffiti art hybrid.

Recalling the richness of Dutch Golden Age still life paintings or perhaps a fantastical Ernst landscape, Corvengi Mikaelian’s oil on canvas at Villa del Arte (Barcelona, Spain)’s booth explores a lost paradise, an ancient and fantastic place inhabited by exotic flowers, wild animals and precious objects. A refined sense of sensuality and exuberance embraces the viewer and takes them to a compelling and imaginary territory. Master of figurative symbolism, Mikaelian brings opposite elements together creating new realities that are not subject to any logic inviting the viewer to get lost in them.

Works by Jeff Muhs represented by The McLoughlin Gallery (San Francisco) encapsulate the section’s emphasis on materiality in contemporary art. Muhs’ practice is conscientious of formal study, engagement with medium, and mastery of technique in its search for artistic truth. His paintings and sculptures bear the artist’s unique aesthetic that is at once ethereal and concrete––bringing together unusual combinations of materials such as oil, encaustic, concrete, and fabrics. A Long Island native, Muhs is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York. Muhs is one of the top 300 most visited artists on Artnet, and his work is featured in numerous private, corporate, and institutional collections including Los Angeles County Museum in Los Angeles, California.

On Materiality: Ceramics, Glass, and Heavy Metal in CONTEMPORARY SPOTLIGHT

NEW YORK, NY – [For immediate release]

             New York Art, Antique & Jewelry Show (NYAAJ) spotlights multidisciplinary contemporary art and design with strong emphasis on materiality and craft inspirations in its inaugural CONTEMPORARY SPOTLIGHT, a special section within the fair, opening at the fair’s new venue, Pier 94 (711 12th Ave, New York City), on Wednesday, November 9th.

            Among the section’s offerings by international roster of exhibitors hailing from ten different cities around the globe, of particular note are works by artists who channel contemporary ethos while innovating upon traditional craft media – including ceramics, glass, and metal.

            Gallery Koo (Seoul, Korea) presents sculptures by Eui-Jeong Yoo who observes capitalism and materialism in his lustrous ceramic forms. Capitalist iconography represented by logos of global consumer brands as well as pop culture icons infiltrates and overwhelms the ceramic vessels whose formal qualities largely remain traditional. With impressive technical versatility, Yoo treats the ancient craft medium in a decidedly “contemporary” manner through the way he freely combines luster, decals, bronze, resin, and sometimes even motors and neons. Yoo has participated in numerous exhibitions at leading institutions including the Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taiwan, the Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale (2013), and the Cheongju International Craft Biennale (2015).

            Clark Priftis (New York, US) presents acclaimed glass artist Abby Modell. Modell draws inspirations from nature – rocks, planets, and orbital movements. Modell’s Moon Cube collection comprises of ethereal hand-blown glass sculptures set with Swarovski crystals. Modell participated in numerous exhibitions including Architectural Digest Design Show (2012-2016), SOFA Chicago (2015 & 2013), Serpentine Sackler Gallery Furniture Exhibition, London (2014), solo exhibitions at Wynn Las Vegas (2015 & 2013), the International Santorini Biennale of Arts (2012) and the famous FABERGE BIG EGG HUNGT NEW YORK (2014). Modell’s work is frequently featured in leading design magazines such as Interior Design Magazine, Hamptons, and NYC&G.

Spanish sculptor Lluis Cera renders hefty materials such as solid iron or marble in surprisingly soft and light forms that appear to defy their weight and mass. Cera’s inspirations often originate from literature, the texts from which are carved or applied to the surfaces of his work. The titles of the works may provide leads to the stories they tell, yet leaving the work completely open to interpretation. Indonesian artist Liechennay masterfully transforms his principal material of choice, cold and rigid steel, into organic and fluid forms. Each sculpture, a combination of stainless steel, wood and copper, is an individually welded and shaped unique piece. Liechennay bends, shapes and joins together thousands of stainless steel pieces one by one in order to compose the final sculpture. Liechennay’s penchant for sculpture-making was formed early through exposure to the works by the artist’s mother who was a designer of gold jewelry. Over the years,  Liechennay worked and exhibited internationally, including in the Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Indonesia, and the U.S.

Art jewelry specialist Charon Kransen (New York, US) presents an exciting collection of jewelry by both renowned and emerging artists, many of whose work can be found in museum and private collections around the world. The focus is on the artists’ personal vision and on an innovative approach, characterized by the use of a wide spectrum of materials from paper to precious. Taiwanese jewelry designer Shu-Lin Wu brings together a unique mixture of Eastern and Western influences to her wearable sculptures. She utilizes techniques from Japanese metalworking and sword-making, shapes from 17th-century European earrings, and found fragments of Delft porcelain. After moving from Taiwan to Europe for school, Wu studied the history of jewelry and art, which led to her interest in the styles molded by the cultural environment of each era. Her creations reinterpret these traditional techniques and shapes in a modern way. Also to be featured is Turkish jewelry designer Aisegul Telli whose work explores the mysteries under the surface – be it that of the moon or the ocean. Telli’s creations resemble mineralogist specimens or corals, and are made of a variety of materials including brass, steel, pigments, epoxy resin, micro glass spheres, and gold.

“CONTEMPORARY SPOTLIGHT is housed inside the NYAAJ, a cross-collecting fair covering an incredible breadth of artistic genres. We are delighted to feature these artworks in CONTEMPORARY SPOTLIGHT that echo the multidisciplinary spirit of the umbrella fair,” explains the fair’s director Barbara Goodwin. “We look forward to presenting these contemporary works of art to the New York collectors who share unbiased appreciation for mastery in artistic expressions regardless of medium, origin and time period.”

            The fair opens on Wednesday, November 9th with an Opening Night Preview and Private Benefit Party hosted by Sharon and Lauren Bush for the FEED Foundation, the non-profit organization that is working to stop worldwide hunger. It is open to the public for regular admission from Thursday, November 10th through Sunday, November 13th between 11am and 7pm.

ABELLAN NEW YORK DEBUTS AT THE NEW YORK ART, ANTIQUE AND JEWELRY SHOW

From the Robb Report Luxury Newswire

 Mystery of the Sea, one-of-a-kind art jewel by Abellan New York

Abellán, the Italian born jewelry artist is the creative force behind Abellán New York, known for her contemporary one-of-a-kind art jewels crafted in New York City. Abellán will debut at the Annual New York Art, Antique and Jewelry Show at the Pier 94 New York City, between Nov 9th and Nov 13th 2016. The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, added to its permanent collection one of Abellán’s masterpieces. These collector’s art jewels spring from Abellán’s mind and heart influenced by her travels around the world. The Artist designs each piece with its own story. Bringing a new creation to life may take up to nine months; this period often extends due to the complexity of the design and the availability of the gemstones. These objets d’art are crafted with exotic gems hand selected by Abellán to create jewel sculptures with unusual color combinations. The pieces are signed, numbered and some have a certificate by the Gemological Institute of America, GIA.

 

The Mediterranean Sea is a crucible of empires, civilizations, such as the Cretan, Egyptian, Roman, Greek, Ottoman, Phoenician, among others. When people view the Mediterranean Sea for the first time they cannot help but be struck by its amazing deep blue color, akin to the color of blue topaz. So it was for master jewelry artist Abellán. In tribute to this vast and mysterious body of water, which captured her imagination, she created the “Mystery of the Sea Ear Pendants” set with London Blue Topaz, which seem to have been plucked right out of the Mediterranean.

The London Blue Topaz is deep and mysterious in color as the darkest and highest in value of all blue topaz. It possesses subtle hints of gray.

The earrings, a symphony of exquisite blue topaz surrounded by emeralds, diamonds and pearls, are set in 18K white gold so they will shimmer like the sun upon the Mediterranean waters.

The importance of the Mediterranean Sea, located between Central Europe, Occidental Asia and Northern Africa, was also in Abellán’s mind during the creative process.

The Mediterranean Sea is referred to as the “marine cradle of life”, being one of the first seas conquered by navigators in ancient times. Its warm waters are perfect for the developing of marine life, and the warm weather in this area has helped the bordering countries to become some of the most important in the world.

The Mystery of the Sea is signed by the Artist and numbered.

            “We have conceived the SPOTLIGHT section booths to have white-painted contemporary gallery look and feel and independent section branding, whereas the rest of the fair will have felt-covered “traditional” wall finish. We attribute this inspiration to our past modern & contemporary exhibitors who told us that, while they loved meeting a diverse clientele at a multi-genre fair such as our event, the traditional presentation wasn’t optimal for staging contemporary artworks,” explains NYAAJ Director Barbara Goodwin of the section’s design, “It’s a mini contemporary fair housed inside a traditional fair.”

            The inaugural SPOTLIGHT section is intimate in size; it nevertheless offers a clear glimpse at the fair’s vision of diversity for the future editions. The ten inaugural section-exhibitors hail from ten different cities in five different countries including Argentina, Canada, Korea, and Spain. Their offerings will span across a wide variety of genres such as paintings, photography, prints, street art, ceramics and glass, sculpture, and art jewelry.

            “Contemporary art fairs across the country are increasingly becoming indistinguishable from one another in both the format and visitor profile,” observes a New York based consultant Seol Park. “A cross-collecting fair like this can help galleries meet new clients they may not come across at contemporary-only events and avoid redundancy in their marketing endeavors.”

            The fair opens on Wednesday, November 9th with an Opening Night Preview and Private Benefit Party hosted by Sharon and Lauren Bush for the FEED Foundation, the non-profit organization that is working to stop worldwide hunger. It is open to the public for regular admission from Thursday, November 10th through Sunday, November 13th between 11am and 7pm.
