Long-Sharp Gallery returns to the Seattle Art Fair for its second year with a focus once more on contemporary sculpture, the work of Spanish-born masters, and a new series of works by Jason Myers.
The works of four contemporary sculptors who create on three continents will be presented. South Korean sculptor Cha Jong Rye is famous in Asia for her hand-created wood works. She is now represented exclusively in the United States by Long-Sharp Gallery. Returning to Seattle from last year’s fair is Indiana-born limestone sculptor Dale Enochs whose new creation, Cartouche, will be prominently featured. Enochs recently served as faculty at the 32nd Annual International Stone Carving Symposium in Port Orchard, Washington, and has been busy preparing for a 2020 solo museum exhibit. He is expected to attend the Seattle Art Fair opening. French-born sculptor Sylvester Gauvrit creates in marble and metal in his studios in Italy and The Netherlands. An accomplished artisan and member of the Royal Society of Sculptors, Gauvrit puts a contemporary twist on the centuries-old practice of carving marble. One example of his newest series of sculpture will come from Italy for the Seattle Art Fair. Works by Indian-American architect Tarik Currimbhoy return to Seattle for the second year. Currimbhoy has quickly become a gallery favorite as he continues to garner national and international attention for his timeless bronze and silver kinetic sculptures.
Spanish-born masters presented in 2019 will be Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. Original works on paper by both artists and prints by Miró (each authenticated by his Foundation) will surround the sculpture presentation.
The booth will be rounded off with a presentation of new works by mixed media artist Jason Myers. Myers, on the heels of his second solo museum exhibition, has just created a new series titled Soldiers of Life in conjunction with Gary Lichtenstein Editions. Vibrant color will shine on the contemporary side of the booth from the paintings created by the late British urban artist David Spiller, works by German-born sculptor Metis Atash, and works by the newest artist to the Long-Sharp Gallery roster, Swiss painter Caroline Dechamby.
Long-Sharp Gallery is delighted to present this multidisciplinary exhibit upon its return to the Seattle Art Fair. For tickets or fair information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
