As we launch our previews for PINTA New York and The Salon: Art + Design, two fairs opening in New York next week, we thought we’d highlight five follow-worthy galleries and a sneak peek into their exciting fair booths.
Hostler Burrows: A New York gallery in the East Village, Hostler Burrows focuses on 20th-century design from Northern Europe and the U.S., with expertise in Scandinavian design. The gallery specializes in ceramics, cabinetry, and hand-woven textiles. At The Salon they’ll show an eclectic mix of works including two bronze and silver screen-like sculptures by Richard Filipowski, a bronze fish vessel from 1930, and two abstract paintings by Hugh Kappel.
Cecilia de Torres: Also located in New York, SoHo gallery Cecilia de Torres is the leading authority on artist Joaquin Torres-Garcia, who is widely considered the father of modern Latin American art. The gallery focuses on Torres-Garcia, the artists from his circle and Latin American Constructivism and geometric abstraction. At PINTA the gallery shows vibrant contemporary sculptures including iridescent acrylic works by Marta Chilindrón and a variety of Torres-Garcia-esque works by Francisco Matto, Manuel Pailós, Augusto Torres, and Héctor Ragni.
Josée Bienvenu: New York Chelsea gallery Josée Bienvenu focuses on drawings and time-based works from emerging and mid-career international artists. Some highlights from their PINTA booth include two works by Dario Escobar, an eight-panel Composition and an abstract painting, as well as photorealistic drawings by Martí Cormand.
Carpenters Workshop Gallery: With two locations in London and one in Paris, Carpenters Workshop Gallery is the brainchild of Parisian entrepreneurs Loic le Gaillard and Julien Lombrail. Focusing on bold, fresh designs from young artists and designers the gallery is renowned for its promotion of bold contemporary design. At The Salon the gallery shows an unconventional aluminum armoire by Vincent Dubourg.
Waterhouse & Dodd: With locations in London and New York and an office in Paris, Waterhouse & Dodd is a leading art dealership internationally. While the galleries on both continents show international contemporary art, in London they also focus on Impressionist and modern art, and at the New York gallery there is a focus on Postwar art. At The Salon, they’ll show a selection of modern and contemporary paintings and prints including works-on-paper by Alexander Calder and Picasso and a Versailles-inspired print by Jean-Francois Rauzier.
