International Art Shows in Full Swing
November is underway, US elections are at rest and the alternative past time of “living” is in full swing. The art world has a series of excellent venues from group venues and exhibit halls to major galleries in New York, Miami, Denver, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The show circuit this week in New York City includes the International Fine Art Print Dealers exposing signed and limited works from Pierrer August Renoir, Miro, Picasso to the modern ilk of Damien Hirst, Robert Kipness and retro favorites Yaacov Agam, Vasarely and Ramos. Colorado is represented by the longstanding print house Sharks Ink. “Cavet emptor” should be used on any print purchase though – but when you are not spending millions for the original and you want the real deal, best to buy from established dealers and galleries like those found at IFPDA Print Fair.
In Denver, GALLERY M opens it’s by appointment only “PIXEL” photography exhibit featuring the works of Alex Guofeng Cao. Along the Golden Triangle, the construction of Governor-Elect Hickenlooper’s pet project, The Clyford Still Museum is progressing. One would have to wonder if Still would be happy that his paintings, while in wait, are on display in the contemporary wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The 2010 Sofa Chicago is a Mid-western favorite. The exhibit hall pulls from all over the country. With national cable media focused on art as an investment, follow your way along the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) artists for some eye opening experiences. We personally are fans of the Japanese period works and staying with experts on Latin America based in Miami.
